"Distinguished Readers,

Another two articles were selected from the freely submitted contributions. The first one deals with a method for controlling the qualitative and quantitative composition of water (cooling liquids). It is based on the comparison of the measured and experimentally established active conductivity component.The subject of the second one is double weighing in air and in liquids for the determination of the volume of weights in the range from 5 kg down to 1 g. Analytical methods and Monte-Carlo simulations are applied to obtain uncertainties.

The Table of Content can be found on the ACTA IMEKO page.
The full papers are available for free from the website of Acta IMEKO. Enjoy reading.
