Pycnometer volume correction

Input(s)

$$V_{k}$$: Calibration Volume of Specific Gravity bottle (Pycnometer) $$\left(\mathrm{mL}\right.$$ or $$\left.\mathrm{cm}^{3}\right)$$

$$T_{t}$$: Test Temperature $$\left({ }^{\circ} \mathrm{C}\right)$$

$$T_{k}$$: Calibration Temperature $$\left({ }^{\circ} \mathrm{C}\right)$$

$$\Omega$$: Material Constant (for Ordinary Glass $$=0.276 \cdot 10^{-4} /{ }^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$$ )

$$\Omega$$: Material Constant (for Pyrex Glass $$=0.156 \cdot 10^{-4} /{ }^{\circ} \mathrm{C}$$ )

Output(s)

$$V_{g}$$: Real Volume of Specific Gravity bottle (Pycnometer) $$\left(\mathrm{mL}\right.$$ or $$\left.\mathrm{cm}^{3}\right)$$

Formula(s)

$\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{g}}=\mathrm{V}_{\mathrm{k}}\left[1+\Omega\left(\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{g}}-\mathrm{T}_{\mathrm{k}}\right)\right]$
