Abstract : The thermal properties of liquid O (LOX) were studied with a loaded piezometer. The amount of O discharged from the piezometer during the experiment was measured (in gaseous form) volumetrically. A precision experimental device was developed to study the density of LOX within the temperature range -190 to +120 degrees to pressures of 200 kg/sq cm, and also the density of LOX along the saturation curve in this same temperature range. The experimental data were processed analytically for presentation of the thermal properties of LOX in tabular form. Note: This abstract comprises the entire document. (Author)
