Diesel contaminated water
|Abstract:||In this paper, an attempt has been made to study the variability of dielectric constant of water contaminated by diesel at two different frequencies. The water samples with the salinity range of 5-50 kppm in an interval of 5 kppm have been measured. The weight percentage of diesel in water is from 0 to 280 percent with 20% interval in Cj band and 0 to 160 percent with 20% interval in Ku band. A simple, practical method of extracting the dielectric constant of water contaminated by diesel is presented in Cj band (5.3 GHz) and Ku band (13.4 GHz) with the help of waveguide cell with shift in minima method. It is concluded that the range of dielectric constant of water in combination with diesel in Cj band is wider as compared to Ku band. Moreover, the dielectric constant of water in combination with diesel is greater and differentiation of data was clearer in Cj band when compared to Ku band.|
