Final Exam A thermopile, made up of multipie thermocouples (see ﬁgure on the
right) can be used to measure temperature differences across an object
directly creating a voltage proportional to the temperature difference.
The more junctions used, the voltage is magnified to create an effective
voltage average, which also lowers the uncertainty. in the present application, we can measure the voEtage with an
uncertainty of +/— 0.05 mV (95%). We expect a temperature difference of 10C across the thermopiie. The thermocouple type used (T) has an output voltage O. 042 mV / C of temperature difference {for one junction pair) In

performed in your laboratory experiment. However, in this case, it is expected that the temperature of
the beam wili be changing during the experiment and that temperature compensation wiil be needed. A
bridge circuit will be used, with aii strain gauges having the same nominal resistance. Using the table on
the next page as a guide, seiect the correct strain gauge setup for temperature compensation in
bending. Sketch the setup and show the location of the strain gauges. Show the location of the
measurement of the bridge deflection voltage. It wili be assumed that any resistors used in place of strain gauges have nominal resistances equal to
that of the strain gauge nominal resistance. Assume a GP = 2, an input voltage of 10 Volts, and the ,
