waterSoundSpeed

Calculate the sound speed in distilled water with temperature.

Syntax

c = waterSoundSpeed(T)

Description

waterSoundSpeed calculates the sound speed 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 sound speed [m/s]
