WHAT DOES GAS THERMOMETER MEAN IN ENGLISH?

gas thermometer

Gas thermometer

A gas thermometer measures temperature by the variation in volume or pressure of a gas. One common apparatus is a constant volume thermometer. It consists of a bulb connected by a capillary tube to a manometer. The bulb is filled with a gas such that the volume of the gas in the bulb remains constant. The volume is related to temperature by k, known as Charles's Law. The pressure of the gas in the bulb can be obtained by measuring the level difference in the two arms of the manometer. Gas thermometers are often used to calibrate other thermometers. Plots of pressure vs temperature for three different gas samples extrapolate to absolute zero. The constant volume gas thermometer plays a crucial role in understanding how absolute zero could be discovered long before the advent of cryogenics. Consider a graph of pressure versus temperature made not far from standard conditions for three different samples of any ideal gas . To the extent that the gas is ideal, the pressure depends linearly on temperature, and the extrapolation to zero pressure occurs at absolute zero.

Definition of gas thermometer in the English dictionary

The definition of gas thermometer in the dictionary is a device for measuring temperature by observing the pressure of gas at a constant volume or the volume of a gas kept at a constant pressure.
