Hi Elia
From your other post it is clear you are making (permittivity??) measurements.
A lot depends on what is mixed with the water and in what ratio. As I mention in my previous post to you, I always used closed containers like coaxial or waveguide transmission support, or resonant cavities, and a Vector Network analyzer or other impedance bridge methods. Containing the field makes the measurement easier to set up and the results more accurate and repeatable, and the errors calculable with confidence.
The open tank free space approach is obviously important if the water is flowing and not static.
What are you considering for the Free Space Method? There are 2 or 3 ways to approach it in that case. What sort of frequency range are you using?

Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The Internet was still largely an unknown entity at the time and not much was available in the form of WYSIWYG ...
