Examples

  • The Baume aerometer (or densimeter) enables the determination of the density of a liquid.

    Chapter 5

  • For this reason, usage of the densimeter enabling the determination of exact concentration of the alkaline solution available for saponification, is necessary.

    Chapter 4

  • Examples showing how to calculate the quantity of caustic soda solution needed for saponification by using the saponification value and the Baune-densimeter.

    Chapter 4

  • The basic solution so obtained can be easily diluted by water addition and usage of a densimeter to control progression of the dilution.

    Chapter 4

  • There was a Geiger counter, an automatic spectrograph, two atmosphere suits, a torsion densimeter, a core-cutting drill, a few small hammers and picks, two spare air tanks, boxes of food concentrate, a paint tube, a doorless jimmy-john and two small metal boxes about eight inches cube.
