dc.description.abstractThis thesis aimed to design a measurement system to obtain B/A readings for different liquids using the isentropic phase method. The resulting system uses a sinusoidal wave source that operates on less than 20kPa to pressurize a sample liquid of less than 0.2 ml. The advantage of the system is that it can obtain measurements using relatively few parameters of the liquid, requiring only density and sound speed, and that it can obtain a result in a relatively short amount of time (less than 15 minutes after system has reached thermal equilibrium).en_ZA
