23. "Weighing" a Gas With Microwave and Acoustic Resonances
Topic: High Performance Buildings
Published: 3/24/2015
Authors: Keith A Gillis, James B. Mehl, James W Schmidt, Michael R Moldover
Abstract: With calibrations of large flow meters in mind, we established the feasibility of determining the mass {I}M{/I}of argon gas contained within a 0.3 m^u3^ commercially manufactured pressure vessel ("tank") with a relative uncertainty of {I}u{/I}^dr^({I ...
