Method of Weighing an Object in Gaseous Atmospheres to Obtain Its True Mass and Volume.

NTIS: PB 193 983 :32 pages
This report describes a new method of weighing based upon observing the apparent weight of an object in two separate pure gases. The method is presented in terms of experimental data which prove its soundness, but does not attempt to show the maximum accuracy possible with this technique. The new method incorporates the underlying principle that the apparent weight of an object is a linear function of the density of the atmosphere in which the object is weighed. The coefficients of this linear function are the true mass and volume of the object. From this functional relationship the true mass and volume of the object may be determined.
