speedSoundWater

Calculate the speed of sound in water with temperature.

Syntax

c = speedSoundWater(T)

Description

speedSoundWater calculates the speed of sound in distilled water at a given temperature using the 5th order polynomial given by Marczak (1997, Water as a standard in the measurements of speed of sound in liquids, J. Acoust. Soc. Am., 102, 2776-2779).

Inputs

T water temperature in the range 0 to 95 [degC]

Outputs

c speed of sound [m/s]
