Liquid-fueled rockets often utilize one or more cryogenic fluids as propellants. For maximum efficiency it is necessary that the mass of propellants loaded aboard the missile be known with considerable accuracy. One means of achieving this end is to know both the volume of the propellant present and its mean specific weight or, as it will be called here, its bulk density.
