The thermometer is used to measure the temperature of the surrounding. You can find a variety of thermometers and one of the famous ones is the Galileo Thermometer. This kind of thermometer is less costly and also provides an accurate result. The thermometer will be made a good one for getting the temperature of the air and liquid. This will give the correct reading. You can find the glass tube that is filled with the water inside it you can also find some of the colorful floating bulbs. The colors are given to the bulbs for the decoration purpose only and this is the reason that most of the people prefer this kind of thermometer.
What is the use of the Galileo thermometer?
The Galileo thermometer will be used to measure the temperature in the air. The room temperature can be easily identified with the help of this thermometer. This will be more helpful for people to know it exactly. The thermometer is available in the market for the gifting purpose and this will comes under the different kinds of the materials or frames. You can find the wood, glass, fiber or other materials that have been framed.
It is simple for the people to keep the product in the table and get to know the room temperature often, it is also the suitable one for knowing the temperature of the liquid and so the people need to insert the thermometer in the liquid and then have to wait for a few minutes and this will tell the temperature of the water. This will be a more interesting one and also good to gift to the people who are having an interest in the physics subject. This will also give more attraction to the rooms because of its colorful balls and the shape of the material.
How to calculate the reading of the thermometer?
The Galileo Thermometer can be measured by seeing the readings that are present in the metal tag that is hanging under the small bulbs. You will find the five to seven bulbs that are present inside the thermometer. This will be the good one for finding the external temperature. The metal tag will indicate the temperature which is stamped in it. So you have to pick the bulb that is not sinking and also not floating. This means that only the bulb that is floating lastly except the all the sunk one will be considered as the current temperature.
The colorful bulbs will give you’re the easy way to get the reading of the bulb.The bulb is filled with a spirit like alcohol or some other liquid. Also, the surrounding the tube is filled the water. So once the surrounding temperature of the temperature is increased then the water that is present in it will also increase. This, in turn, makes the bulb to sink because on because of the contraction or the expansion. So the bulb may sink or float according to the density level that is present inside and outside of it. The bulb that is having the lower density will show the high temperature and vice versa.
