Unformatted text preview: the temperature difference between the ice bath and T 1 . Note that the junction at the measurement device no longer contains dissimilar metals (wire type B is connected to both terminals of the measurement device) and therefore does not contribute its own voltage as it does in Figure 12. If one junction is held at a constant known temperature then the voltage generated will be a function of the temperature of the other junction. 16 Page 14 of 16...
