The Speed of Sound in the Liquid Phase of Hexane Isomers


In this paper we measured the speed of sound over the saturation line in the liquid phase of 2-methylpentane, 3-methylpentane, and 2,2-dimethylbutane using the pulse-phase echo method within a range from–30°C to the critical point. The error of the obtained speed of sound is within 1 m/s.
