Baume (Be)

An arbitrary scale of specific gravities used in the graduation of hydrometers. The Baume measurements were developed by the French chemist Antoine Baume . For liquids heavier than water Be = 145 - (145 specific gravity); for liquids lighter than water, Be = (140 ö specific gravity) - 130.
