Almost every scientific experiment or industrial process requires a measurement of temperature. For example, the specification of the length of an object is meaningless without reference to the temperature at which the measurement was made. And all chemical and biological processes are intrinsically temperature-dependent – often critically so. This article looks at how a highly accurate thermometer measures temperatures by finding the speed of sound in a gas.
