Temperature Measurement – Lecture 9

“The Science & Art of Temperature Measurement”

The first Lecture in Module 2, on the first topic of the Mechanical Measurements and Metrology, a part of the course from the Indian Institute of Technology Madras, India – online at youtu.be/GNOI_7ftbQ0.

It assumes an educational level of at least first year college engineering or higher, Some of the topics in this series of lectures also assume some knowledge of prior lectures in the Series (see below).

This is but one of the 50 videos in this course. A full list of the course contents is below.

The courses related to temperature measurement in this series are Numbers 9 through 19, inclusive, titles illustrated in red below. Additional lectures in this course detail related topics in measurement errors, and measurements of thermophysical properties of matter, subects that any serious student of temperature measurement should know well, indeed. The tiles of the latter lecture topics are shown as green in the list.

All of these lectures may be seen here or on YouTube.com, or on the NPTEL website at http://nptel.iitm.ac.in/video.php?subjectId=112106138, where flowplayer is used to display the lectures. Read more Temperature Measurement – Lecture 9

Calibrating Ordinary Thermometers

This six-minute video by AquaLab captures the correct way to check, verify and if necessary, adjust some ordinary thermometers using an ice bath.

Most people think that it’s easier to do so at the boiling point of water, but the ice point (very nearly 0.01 ° C at all normal atmospheric pressures) is far more stable than the boiling point that varies considerably with atmospheric pressure and consequently the altitude of the location at which the measurement is made.

What’s more, the ice point was, until about 1990, the fundamental reference point for the Centigrade and Fahrenheit scales. However, when the internationally agreed definition of the Celsius scale replaced the Centigrade scale, as a part of The International Temperature Scale (ITS-90) .

The new reference became the triple point of water precisely 0.01 ° C lower than the ice point. The ice point of water, a well-stirred mixture of ice and water is still as stable as ever, for ice and water that are free of contaminants (that is, both made up of distilled, de-ionized water).
