Abstract

Use of a quartz tuning fork for precise measurements of density has been studied in normal 3He liquid and in 4He liquid and vapor, spanning a reasonably wide range of fluid densities. It is evident that the compressibility of the fluid must be accounted for in order to properly interpret the resonator response.
