a. Weigh the tank and its contents and zero out the tare weight of the tank.

b. Use a radioactive level measurement.

c. Install a conductivity level measurement.

d. Use a thermal conductivity level detector

**Answer:** a

**9. A displacer 48 inches long and 1% inches in diameter is used to measure density on a 4 to 20 mA dc transmitter.Its total submerged weights hanges from 1.42 pounds to 5.7 pounds.
