1.1 This standard is for use in calculating the weight and volume of benzene, toluene, mixed xylenes, styrene, ortho-xylene, meta-xylene, para-xylene, cumene, ethylbenzene, 148.9 to 176.7°C and 176.7 to 204.4°C aromatic hydrocarbons, and cyclohexane. A method is given for calculating the volume at 15°C and 20°C from an observed volume at t°C. Table 1 lists the density in grams per cubic centimetre at 15°C and 20°C for high purity chemicals.
1.2 Calculated results shall be rounded off in accordance with the rounding-off method of Practice E 29
1.3 The values stated in either SI units or inch-pound units are to be regarded separately as standard. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Combining values from the two systems may result in non-conformance with the standard.
1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
