Ultrasonic velocity and density of potassium nitrate, potassium iodide, potassium chloride and potassium hydroxide solution in polyacrylmaide binary solution has been measured at 303K in different concentration. Ultrasonic velocity has been measured using single frequency interferometer at 2 MHz (Model F-81). From the experimental data, other related thermodynamic parameters, viz adiabatic compressibility, intermolecular free length, acoustic impedance and surface tension are calculated. The compressibility of a solvent is higher than that of a solution and it decreases with the increase in concentration of the solution. The abrupt variation of a velocity indicates the formation of complex. The results have been discussed in terms of solute-solute and solute-solvent interactions between the component and the compatibility of these methods in predicting the interactions in these mistures has also been discussed.
