EFFECTS OF ELECTRICAL CURRENT FREQUENCY ON THE PHYSICOCHEMICAL CHARACTERISTICS OF WASTEWATER
Keywords:Wastewater; Physicochemical; Hydrogen bonds; Frequency.
Water plays a crucial role in the growth and development of species on Earth. Changes in the physicochemical properties of water have a large effect on human activities as well. Researchers have studied and evaluated the effects of electrical current frequency (f = 0÷2.000 Hz) on the physicochemical properties (surface tension, dynamic viscosity, specific weight) of wastewater. The effect of electric fields on the physicochemical properties of water, allows it to identify the optimal treatment regimes that promote the intensification of various processes taking place in an aqueous medium or in the presence of water.
