Abstract
Calibration of Temperatur

Every measurement has a degree of uncertainty associated with it. The uncertainty derives from
the measuring device and from the skill of the person doing the measuring.
Let's use volume measurement as an example. Say you are in a chemistry lab and need 7

In Table 1, using a micrometer and a multimeter, 10 readings of the output voltage were taken
within the range of the proximity probe to measure the displacement of aluminum. The readings
were random but they increase in displace

The manometer reading and voltage output from the positive port (P+) are shown in Table 1.
This data was used to find the gage pressure and the absolute pressure.
Gage pressure is calculated using Equation 1. Density of water in

Results
In the laboratory, the temperature, T, was measured to be 23C, or 296 K. The vapor pressure, Pv,
was measured to be 76 mm Hg, or 102095 Pa. Using Equation 1, the density of air in the
laboratory was calculated to be 1.202 kg/m3.

1. First, the items for a band-pass filter were gathered. From the room, the following were
retrieved: a 741 op-amp, two 10k resistors, a 0.01F capacitor, a 0.47F capacitor, a
BNC splitter, two BNC to banana cables, and a BNC to BNC cable. The
