I am attempting to explain to my boss the dependency of gas composition to the transit time in ultrasonic meters. I am getting conflicting information of the dependency of the speed of sound in a gas with molecular weight. Some (reputable?) web sites show an equation with dependency on specific heat ratio and temperature only. Others show that there is a molecular weight dependency. Can anyone cite a reliable source of information? Thank You.
