BAUME SCALE
INTRODUCTION
The French chemist Antoine Baum devised the scale for marking hydrometers
DEFINITION
The Baum scale is a measure of a solution's specific gravity, not its concentration.and
The Baum scale is not a temperature scale

DESIGN OF BAUME SCALE OR EQUIPMENT DETAIL:
Designating or conforming to either of the scales used by theFrench chemist Antoine
Baum'e! in the graduation of his hydrometers" of or relating to Baum'e!'s scales
orhydrometers. There are t#o Baum'e! hydrometers. \$ne, #hich is used #ith li%uids
heavier than #ater, sinks to &deg! in pure #ater, and to '(deg! in a '( per cent salt
solution" the other, for li%uids lighter than #ater, sinks to &deg! in a '& per cent salt
solution and to '&deg! in pure #ater. )n both cases the graduation, based on the
distance bet#een these fundamental points, is continued along the stem as far as
desired.

For li%uids that are heavier than #ater, &*B marks the #ater level of the hydrometer
placed in pure #ater, and '(*B corresponds to the #ater level #hen the scale is placed
in a solution that is '(+ ,a-l by mass. For li%uids that are lighter than #ater, '&*B
marks the level for pure #ater and &*B corresponds to a solution that is '&+ ,a-l by
mass.

INTO MOLAR SOLUTION
To get the molarity of the /-l, you'll have to convert degrees Baum to a specific
gravity,and then use the specific gravity to look up the concentration of /-l from
a tablein a handbook. For e0ample, the -1- handbook has tables that relate
specific gravitiesto con centrations for sulfuric acid.
CALCULATE SPECIFIC GRA6IT8 FROM DEGREE BAUME
Note: 2ince all the degrees on a Baum'e! scale are thus e%ual in length, #hile those on
a specific3gravity scale gro# smaller as the density increases, there is no simple
relation bet#een degrees B'e!. and 2p. gr./o#ever, readings on Baum'e!s scale may
be appro0imately reduced to specific gravities by the follo#ing formula 40 in each case
being the reading on Baum'e!'s scale5 6

)8DROMETER.
An instrument for measuring the specific gravity of li%uids. A hydrometer is a #eight #ith
a vertical scale attached. Ghen placed into a li%uid, the hydrometer bobs upright, and
sinks to a certain level. The specific gravity or solution composition can be read from the
li%uid level on the vertical scale. /ydrometers are often calibrated in degrees Baum.

2odium hydro0ide 4,a\$/5, also kno#n as lye or caustic soda, is a caustic metallic base.
An alkali, caustic soda is #idely used in many industries, mostly as a strong chemical
base in the manufacture of pulp and paper, te0tiles, drinking #ater, and detergents

ANS.Eure sodium hydro0ide is a #hite solid, available in pellets, flakes, granules, and
also (&+ saturated solution. )t is deli%uescent and also readily absorbs carbon dio0ide
from the air, so it should be stored in an ai!ti'-t ,ontaine!. )t is very soluble in #ater
#ith liberation of heat. )t also dissolves in ethanol and methanol, though it e0hibits lo#er
solubility in these solvents than does potassium hydro0ide. )t is insoluble in ether and
other non3polar solvents. A sodium hydro0ide solution #ill leave a yello# stain on fabric
and paper.

USE IN C)EMICAL ANAL8SIS
)n analytical chemistry, sodium hydro0ide solutions are often used to measure
the concentration of acids by titration. 2ince ,a\$/ is not a primary standard, solutions
must first be standardised by titration against a standard such as K/E. Burettes e0posed
to ,a\$/ should be rinsed out immediately after use to prevent 1/!ee=in'1 o/ t-e
