un·der·wat·er weigh·ing

(ŭn'dĕr-waw'tĕr wā'ing)
Assessment of body volume by measuring a person's weight in air and again under water; loss of scale weight (corrected for water density) equals body volume. Body density (body mass:volume ratio) is then used to compute percent body fat.
Synonym(s): densitometry, hydrodensitometry, hydrostatic weighing.
