5/3/2011 ENGR201 Lecture 6 Spring 2011 5 Measuring Temperature • Very common parameter in engineering – body temperature (fever) – monitor chemical/biological reaction – semiconductor wafer processing – air temp (HVAC, environmental) – curing temperature (epoxies, concrete) – many, many more applications 5/3/2011 ENGR201 Lecture 6 Spring 2011 6 History of Temperature Measurement • Based on zeroth law of thermodynamics – two systems each in thermal equilibrium with a third are in thermal equilibrium with each other • Long history – associated with some great names – Galileo (1565-1642) – barothermoscope ( temp and pressure ) – Newton (1642-1727) – fixed points: freezing water and human armpit – Fahrenheit (1686-1736) – 180 units between frozen and boiling water (at atmospheric pressure); successful Hg thermometer – Celsius (1701-1744) – 100 units between boiling-freezing water (inverted scale, i.e. boiling was 0) – Linnaeus (1707-1778) – brought Celsius scale to present form
