TheVictor Meyer apparatusis the standard laboratory method for determining themolecular weightof avolatileliquid. It was developed byViktor Meyer

In this method, a known mass of a volatile solid or liquid under examination is converted into its vapour form by heating in a Victor Meyer's tube. The vapour displaces its own volume of air. The volume of air displaced at experimental temperature and pressure is calculated. Then volume of air displaced atStandard Temperature and Pressureis calculated. Using this, mass of air displaced at 2.24x10-2m3of vapor at STP is calculated. This value represents the molecular mass of the substance.
