Abstract

A method for measuring the visible contact angle between liquid iron and magnesium oxide substrate was presented. Sessile drop technique was used for the purpose of analysis. The study helped in clarifying the effect of oxygen on the interfacial phenomenon between magnesium oxide and iron. Scanning electron microscopy was used for the purpose of observation.
