The density of fluids is an important quantity in a vast range of applications. Whether you drink a coke in your favorite burger restaurant, have a Vodka shot in a nice cocktail bar or
cream your skin with sun cream - density measurements served as a quality control check of the product. Digital densimeters based on the U-tube principle are a formidable choice to quickly and accurately measure the density of fluids as different as water, honey or cream. After a brief introduction of Anton Paar - leading company in the field of digital density meters and my employer -
I would like to shed light on the U-tube principle and the challenges in density measurement. In the end I will shortly talk about my role as a physicist in the product cycle of a manufacturer of precision measurement instruments.
