Description

Density and viscosity are an important physical property of biodiesel. In this work, proposed a single empirical equation can be estimated without the prior knowledge of the density and viscosity of an individual fatty acid ethyl ester, an empirical approach for estimation the density and viscosity of ethyl-biodiesel are correlated to saponification number (SN), iodine value (IV) and temperature. Data available in literatures are used to validate, and support the speculations derived from the proposed equation. The proposed equations are easy to use and the estimated density and viscosity values of ethyl-biodiesel at different temperatures agree well with the literature values. It is shown that it can estimate the densities and viscosities of ethyl-biodiesel with average deviations were 0.28% and 4.20%, respectively.
