On the basis of high-precision drop-time electrocapillary measurements carried out Available online 30 April 2016 in 0.1 mol l KCl aqueous solution, with c values known from the absolute measurement method, the performance of the calibration methods, expressed in terms of measurement bias and uncertainty, is Keywords: evaluated and compared. Better performance is observed for the methods that involve a nonlinear model Electrocapillary measurement such as c ¼ at ﬁtted to calibration data, instead of a single-point linear calibration commonly
