hydrometer

listen to the pronunciation of hydrometer
İngilizce - İngilizce
an instrument that floats in a liquid and measures its specific gravity on a scale
an instrument for determining the density of solids and liquids by flotation
{n} an instrument to measure the gravity, density of fluids
A tool for testing the specific-gravity of a fluid, such as the electrolyte in a flooded battery Typically a squeeze-bulb is used to suck up a sample of the fluid, and a float indicates the specific gravity
an instrument that floats in a liquid and indicates its specific gravity on a scale
A gizmo that lets you measure the specific gravity of a liquid It's a glass cylinder that looks a lot like a thermometer The denser the liquid, the higher the hydrometer floats
An instrument for determining either the specific gravity of a liquid or the API gravity
A device that is used to measure the amount of sugar in beer or wine This instrument will tell the brewer the amount of potential alcohol in the finished wort or must
A glass instrument for measuring the specific gravity of liquids as compared to that of water, consisting of a graduated stem resting on a weighted float Most hydrometers are calibrated for use at 15 6C (60F) and tables or charts are provided listing corrections for variations in temperature The accuracy of a hydrometer is tested in water at 15 6C (60F) where it should read 1 000
a current gauge
A calibrated instrument for measuring the specific gravity of a liquid
An instrument used to check the specific gravity (strength) of the electrolyte in the battery Most Lead-Acid batteries will be in the range of 1 1 to 1 3 specific gravity, with most fully charged batteries being about 1 23 to 1 30 (some hydrometers multiply this number by 1000, so 1 23 would read as 1230 ) Hydrometers are inexpensive and can be purchased at any auto parts store Some batteries manufactured for use in very hot or very cold climates may have stronger or weaker acid If so, it is usually marked on the battery See also Specific Gravity
A device to determine the specific gravity of a liquid It's used to test battery electrolyte and the percentage of coolant in the cooling system
A device used to measure the SG of a wine or must
An instrument for determining the specific gravities of liquids, and thence the strength spirituous liquors, saline solutions, etc
- An instrument used to measure state-of-charge (voltage) of a battery
and called by various specific names according to its construction or use, as tachometer, rheometer, hydrometer, pendulum, etc
A graduated instrument for finding the specific gravity of liquids A hydrometer is used to determine the concentration of acid in a storage battery or to test the purity of milk, the strength of alcohol or salt in a substance, etc A hydrometer consists of a glass tube with a bulb syringe for sucking up samples of the electrolyte Within the glass tube is a calibrated float The depth to which the float sinks is a measure of the specific gravity of the solution (Dictionary of Science)
An instrument, variously constructed, used for measuring the velocity or discharge of water, as in rivers, from reservoirs, etc
device that compares the density of a sample with the density of water to directly indicate the alcohol content of the spirit
An instrument made of glass used to measure the specific gravity of a liquid as compared to water The instrument consists of a graduated stem resting on a floating weight
{i} instrument for measuring the specific gravity of liquids
Instrument for measuring the sugar content of the must
An instrument for determining specific gravity It can also be used as a grain size test, because grain size distribution affects the specific gravity of fluids according to the distribution present
A device used to measure the specific gravity of seawater The most common types consist of a clear chamber with a floating needle
a measuring instrument for determining the specific gravity of a liquid or solid
A simple device that measures the specific gravity of battery electrolyte Specific gravity readings express state of charge / discharge of battery
A long, weighted, tapered glass rod that is calibrated and floats in solutions It is used to measure density of liquids, especially silicates
An instrument used for measuring the specific gravity of a liquid
instrument used to measure water salinity based on the density and specific gravity of the water
(Otomotiv) A device to determine the specific gravity of a liquid. It's used to test battery electrolyte and the percentage of coolant in the cooling system
A device used to measure the densities of liquids and solutions
An instrument that uses buoyancy to measure the density of a liquid; it consists of a weighted tube that floats vertically and determines the specific gravity of the liquid by a comparison of the scale on the tube with the level it floats in the liquid
A device for measuring the sugar content of beer wort, by determining its density There are several different hydrometer scales which are used; the most common one used by homebrewers is specific gravity; other commonly used scales are Plato, and potential alcohol
An instrument that measures the specific gravity of liquids
A float type instrument used to determine the state-of-charge of a battery by measuring the specific gravity of the electrolyte (i e the amount of sulfuric acid in the electrolyte)
