  • Hydrodynamic additive mixing is defined by hashing of molecules

    Additives and components dissolution in liquids are explained by hashing of molecules of different substances and grades. It is essential that the volume of a mix can differ from the sum of volumes of unmixed substances that testifies various compactness of molecular systems. So, at mixture of 100 cm of water and 100 cm of alcohol turn out to a total of 196 cm of a mix: in a mix of a molecule ...
