Abstract
A method to measure the density of charcoal-impregnated polyurethane foam which gives results with standard deviations of less than 0.7% has been developed. Curves relating density of impregnated foam to weight fraction of solids in the foam are presented. These curves allow the determination of the solids content of a foam sample by measuring its density, provided the density of the unimpregnated foam is known. If the composition of the impregnite is known, a more accurate estimation of the weight fraction of solids is possible and the charcoal content may also be determined.
