Density and Speed of Sound Measurements of Hexadecane
Stephanie L. Outcalt, Arno R. Laesecke, Tara J. Fortin
The density and speed of sound of hexadecane have been measured using two instruments. Both instruments use the vibrating-tube method for measuring density. Ambient pressure (83 kPa) density and speed of sound measurements were carried out with a rapid characterization instrument from 290.65 K to 343.15 K. Adiabatic compressibilities are derived from the density and speed of sound data at ambient pressure. Compressed liquid density measurements were carried out in a second instrument and ranged from 310 K to 470 K with pressures from 1 MPa to 50 MPa. The density measurements are correlated within 0.1 % with a modified Tait equation.
