Results of the measurement of the density of the test item

Test No.  Temperature [°C] Test item chamber size Reference vessel No. Weight in of test item [g] Density [g/cm³]* 
 1  20  Small (25.62 cm³)  76 (21.35 cm³)  29.31 5.60211
 2  20  Small (25.62 cm³)  76 (21.35 cm³)  30.30 5.60157

*The pressurizing-expansion cycles are performed until 5 subsequent volume measurements have a relative standard deviation (RSD) >0.02%.

The mean density of the test item at 20°C is 5.60184  g/cm³ (SD = 0.0004, RSD = 0.01%). The relative density D420is calculated by dividing the density of the test item by the density of water at 4°C (0.9999750 g/cm³).

The relative density is D420= 5.60

Conclusions:
According to OECD Test Guideline 109 (1995) and EC 440/2008 Part A method A.3., the relative density D420 of the test item at 20°C ± 0.01°C (compared to water at 4°C) is D420 = 5.60
