d.    Table of Volumes and Standard Weights:
Volume of  Deionized Water
(at RT and sea level)            "Standard" Weight
1.55 ml                             1.5455 g
1.00 ml                             0.9971 g
0.75 ml                             0.7478 g
0.50 ml                             0.4985 g
0.40 ml                             0.3988 g
