An apparatus is described for the measurement of the isothermal compressibility of liquids at pressures up to 50 atm. and temperatures to 60°C. The apparatus has been used to measure the isothermal compressibility of water from 2° to 55°C. The results are discussed briefly and compared to the values obtained by other workers.
