Ultrasonic velocity (U), viscosity (η) and Density (ρ) were measured for three component liquid system of tetrahydrofuran (THF)+heptane+decane at 303, 308 and 313 K. The excess values of various acoustical parameters such as viscosity (ηE), adiabatic compressibility (βE), free length (LEf), free volume (VEf), internal pressure (πEi) and Gibb’s free energy (ΔGE) have been calculated from the experimental data and discussed in terms of weak molecular interaction present in the mixtures.
