Abstract : A computer-aided procedure was developed for obtaining specific volumes from measured ultrasonic velocities in any nondispersive medium. Newly measured velocities up to 80C and 10,000 kg/sq cm yielded values of specific volumes for water over this same range. P. W. Bridgman's measurements of specific volumes in the high-pressure range showed systematic differences of a few tenths of a percent; the present calculations yield values believed to be good to 0.050 or better.
