Detecting Argon Gas in Water

  1. Oct 28, 2014 #1
    I am doing a research project on sonoluminescence and I am researching if any changes to argon would be made if argon is present in the water. For this I want to find a way to measure the concentration of argon gas accurately and easily. Can anyone help me, whether it be an equation to use, chemical used to detect it or a probe or anything. Please answer quickly.

    Thank You!

    Argon is chemically inert, so there are no chemical methods to detect it.

    Have you tried googling? Some of the very first hits for "argon determination in water" look promising.
