Ultrasonic velocity and density measurements were made in two binary liquid mixtures Isopropyl acetate (IPA) and Isobutyl acetate (IBA) with cyclohexanone (CY) as a common component at 303K, at fixed frequency of 2MHz using single crystal variable path interferometer and specific gravity bottle respectively. The experimental data have been used to calculate the acoustic impedance, adiabatic compressibility, inter molecular free length and molar volume. The excess thermodynamic parameters have been evaluated and discussed in the light of molecular interactions.
