Abstract: The dielectric constant measurement setup has been developed to measure static dielectric constant of liquids at low frequencies using integrated circuit of Monostable Multivibrator. The change in pulse width measured by using Tektronix TDS 2024 four channel digital storage oscilloscope. We can compute change in capacitance and hence calculate static dielectric of liquids. This paper reports the static dielectric constants measured by the technique of some pure polar, nonpolar liquids at 298 K. The details of its interface to measure static dielectric constant of liquids and evaluated results are explained in this paper. The method employed is simple, reliable and repeatability of results is very good.


Keywords: Static dielectric constant, Tektronix TDS 2024 four channel digital storage oscilloscopes, Monostable multivibrator
