Controlling 5.6ï¿½This practice is designed for use by trained technical individuals with minimal knowledge of complex analytical chemistry procedures.
1.1ï¿½This practice covers the recommended procedure for determining the water activity (1.2ï¿½Unitsâ€”The values stated in SI units are to be regarded as the standard. Water activity is a ratio, and thus is without unit designation.
1.3ï¿½This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
