Abstract:

The method described simplifies the process of temperature determination. The ratio of the thermometer resistance at 100 degrees to the resistance at 0 degrees is established by calibration of the platinum resistance thermometer. The ratio is reduced to the standard magnitude 1.392. The measured temperature can then be calculated from the known formula given. 16
