The investigation aims at a detailed examination of the electrified interface at Hg/aqueous h2so4 solution interface. The electrocapillary curves of the radioactive base electrolyte are found to be appreciably different from those of the corresponding nonradioactive electrolyte. The effect of H2O2 on the electrocapillary curves is to lift the electrocapillary curves of non radioactive base electrolyte. The relative positive charge on mercury on the anodic side of electrocapillary curve is reduced by the B-radiation emanating from (SO4)2- of the base electrolyte and at the same time the relative negative charge on mercury on the cathodic side is increased. This indicates that the electrostatic interaction of b-radiation with mercury is more than the effect due to H2O2 that is prouced in situ. This study indirectly indicates that the charge density of a metal is more fundamental electrical variable than the electrode potential.
