Abstract : Recent measurements of the velocity of sound in distilled ordinary water give the isothermal compressibility. At least at low temperatures, isothermal compressibilities from the velocity of sound should have fewer systematic errors than direct determinations. Acoustic and direct measurements together give an equation for the isothermal compressibility valid from 0 to 150 C. and to be considered a best estimate of the isothermal compressibility; a table is given to 110 C.
