Specific gravity of bio-oil was measured using 10-mL pycnometer glass (ASTM International 2002).
A final confirmation of the through wall porosity was conducted by evaluating the spheres pycnometer density before and after acid leaching.
The viscosity was determined with Ubbelohde glass capillary viscometer and density with a pycnometer.
Total soil porosity was calculated from particle (Blake and Hartge 1986a) and bulk density (Blake and Hartge 1986b), which were measured using the pycnometer method (50-mL flask) and core method (100 [cm.
After expansion, the particles were sieved to separate them by size and their density was measured using a pycnometer.
Normal boiling temperatures, densities measured in a capillary pycnometer, and refractive indices measured in an Abbe refractometer at 293.
Prices range from $5,000 for a manual gas pycnometer to $20,000 for an automated multi-chamber model with temperature control.
