RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while typing up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...

relative permittivity and relative permeability of water - RF Cafe Forums

RF Cafe Forums closed its virtual doors in 2012 mainly due to other social media platforms dominating public commenting venues. RF Cafe Forums began sometime around August of 2003 and was quite well-attended for many years. By 2010, Facebook and Twitter were overwhelmingly dominating online personal interaction, and RF Cafe Forums activity dropped off precipitously. Regardless, there are still lots of great posts in the archive that ware worth looking at. Below are the old forum threads, including responses to the original posts.

-- CAE, CAD, & Software

Do anybody knows the relative permeability and relative permittivity for water?

Hi ella_lyza

Try this url.

http://www.lsbu.ac.uk/water/microwave.html

The complex permittivity data given is good if the water is pure, but if mixed with other complex molecules, the value drops rapidly according to the relative mixture %.

Water is paramagnetic, but probably has a very low value ie close to 1.0

Further data:

at X band these figures are very reliable, coming from Institute of Physics, where the data was claimed to be accurate to within 0.2%. I quote:

It is found that epsilon '=62.256(37), epsilon "=31.570(47) at f=9.346 GHz, T=293K; and epsilon '=64.156(38), epsilon "=28.623(43) at f=9.370 GHz, T=298K.

My comment:

Note that over a small frequency range (9.34 to 9.37GHz) the value changes by about 4%, which I find rather surprising.

Even further data, applicable to water at 20* C and at F=2.45GHz can be found at

http://www.bsyse.wsu.edu/tang/Previousw ... ang100.pdf

This shows epsilon' as 78 and epsilon" as 6.8

Google is a great tool for this sort of question.
