METTLER TOLEDO reveals the first of its new Laboratory Weighing Application pages: Density Measurement. Combined scientific theory, methods and standards, as well as practical tips support you step-by-step to determine the density of various materials accurately.
Greifensee, Switzerland — March 1, 2018 — Density of raw materials and finished products affects their quality and lifetime. A properly performed density determination analysis may be crucial to verify material characteristics.
A new, comprehensive application page entitled Density Measurement from METTLER TOLEDO explains the challenges and solutions regarding one of the most common gravimetric laboratory techniques - Buoyancy Method, which is based on Archimedes' Principle.
The rule, dating back to 200 BC, states that a body immersed in fluid indicates an apparent loss in weight equal to the weight of the fluid it displaces. This principle applies today to gravimetric determination of density.
Using a balance and a density kit, users can determine the density of several materials by having all the essential knowledge on one page, which covers issues such as:
Application workflow, including a comparison table showing different density determination methods and density standards
Formulas and calculation examples
