Fields are described in terms of free-space modes. Measurements are based on the amplitude of incident, transmitted and reflected waves in different directions. It is clear from the above that specific experimental techniques must be used for dielectric measurements in each frequency range. 62618 9 10-34 Js) and f is the frequency. 3807 9 10-23 J/K (Boltzmann constant). ð4:10Þ 46 4 Electric Properties of Liquids To ascertain the validity of the classical treatment of the electromagnetic field in the interaction with macroscopic matter, it must be borne in mind that quantum effects will be relevant when the energy of individual photons becomes comparable to thermal fluctuations.

The calorific value of a fuel is defined as the amount of heat produced when the fuel is burnt completely. Essentially, the calorific value of biodiesel depends strictly on the calorific value of the vegetable oil used as feedstock. This relies heavily on the carbon number of the fatty acid chain (chain length) and the degree of unsaturation [50]. The measurement of the electrical properties (permittivity and dielectric loss) in the raw materials, in the different stages of the biodiesel manufacturing process and in the effluent (water used during washing steps), is also useful because it provides information about the reaction and of the different washing steps [51].
