measure of the quantity of heat in an object, usually as measured on a
The principle by which instruments measures
temperature is simple - sensor is placed in the sample, a potential is applied across the
sensor and the current or resistance is measured and converted into temperature. Generally,
the potential is very low when thermistor being use as the sensing
elements to prevent self heating.
°K= °C + 273.15
°C = (°F-32) x 5/9
°F = (9/5 x °C) +32
°R= °F + 459.67
5/9 = 0.5555555 and 9/5 = 1.8
example: 25.01°C = 198.16°K = 77.018°F = 536.688°R
degree of heat of a living body an excess of this over the normal 37C or
98.6F in humans (fever)
degree of heat of the atmosphere is the ability of a solution to conduct electric
