Absolute Zero Sphere - TD-8595

TD8595_inUse_MAIN.jpg

Shown in use with the Absolute Pressure/Temperature Sensor

Overview

The Absolute Zero Sphere has a constant volume - perfect for determining absolute zero temperature. Connect a Pressure Sensor and Temperature Sensor and immerse the sphere in water baths of several different temperatures. See pressure and temperature changes in realtime. Once the data is collected, students can use a linear fit to extrapolate the value of absolute zero.

See how to quickly estimate the temperature value of absolute zero using PASCO’s Absolute Zero Sphere and PASPORT probeware.

Typical Applications

  • Experimentally determine the temperature of absolute zero
  • Investigate the relationship between pressure and temperature (Gay-Lussac's Law)
  • Discover the Ideal Gas Law

Includes

  • Absolute Zero Sphere
  • Built-in Fast Response Thermistor Probe
  • Quick Connect Pressure Port
  • Going Wireless

    The Absolute Zero Sphere includes an adapter for use with the Wireless Pressure Sensor. However, because of the connection required, the Wireless Temperature Sensor cannot be used.
