What is thermometry?

Thermometry The branch of heat relating to the measurement of the temperature of a body is called thermometry. The thermometer is an instrument used to measure the temperature of a body. The essential requisites of a thermometer are given as under:  1) Construction, 2) Calibration, and 3) Sensitiveness. For the construction of a thermometer, the proper choice of a substance, whose physical property varies uniformly with rising in temperature, is essential. 1) Construction The physical property of a substance plays an important role in the construction of a thermometer. In a mercury thermometer, the principle of expansion of mercury with rising temperature is used. The platinum resistance thermometer is based on the principle of the change in resistance with a change in temperature. The gas thermometer is based on the principle of change in volume or pressure with a change in temperature. 2) Calibration  When a thermometer is constructed, it should be properly calibrated.

Simple distillation

If we want to obtain the solvent from a solution, then the process of distillation can be carried out. The apparatus used in this process is shown in Figure.



Water can be obtained from saltwater using this method. The solution is heated in the flask until it boils. The steam rises into the Liebig condenser, where it condenses back into the water. The salt is left behind in the flask. In hot and arid countries such as Saudi Arabia, this sort of technique is used on a much larger scale to obtain pure water for drinking. This process is carried out in a desalination plant.
