The standard electronic method today is a vibrating tuning fork. The
density of the liquid appears in the differential equation of the oscillation.
Unfortunately, it was patented, so these devices are still very expensive
(~ $2,000 to start, now in hundreds). The patent should be running out in
the next few years, though.
