F2-11: HYDROMETER

f2-11af2-11b

Additional Info

  • ID Code: F2-11
  • Purpose: Measure the density of a liquid.
  • Description: If the hydrometer is immersed in a graduated cylinder filled with water, the reading on the scale (center photograph) should be C(W) = 1000, indicating that the scale is calibrated for water. If the hydrometer is put into the saline solution (photograph at right), the number C(L) at the level of the liquid is read. The density D(L) of the unknown liquid is given by: D(L)=C(L)*D(W)/1000,where D(W) is the density of water in kg/m^3. One can measure densities between 0.7 and 2.0 using this device.
