Need reference for material properties

  1. Jul 22, 2010 #1
    I am an electrical engineer and not familiar with this. I need to look up the permittivity and conductivity, density and acoustic speed of some common fluids: sea water, de-ionized water, castor oil, alchohol, ....

    Where would I find some reference containing these numbers? Thank you.

    You may want to check the CRC Handbook of Chemistry and Physics, or MERCK Index, or NIST, or (if you have access) Knovel.

    This website might give you an idea of where to look (might help to branch off from some of its links):

    Hope it helps. If someone knows better sources- I would like to know as well : )

    Thank you for sharing the reference. I particularly like books, just handy to check and reliable. Also came across this
