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.
