oa Journal of Applied Science in Southern Africa - Uncertainty in the calibration of a partially immersed Liquid-in-Glass thermometer

Volume 7, Issue 2
  • ISSN : 1019-7788



This paper presents an example of a typical calibration of a partially immersed Liquid-in-Glass (LiG) thermometer, by comparison to a standard precision digital thermometer, to obtain a correction to the LiG thermometer at a nominal temperature of 50C. The standard way of evaluating and expressing the measurement uncertainty in typical corrections and uncertainty sources for the calibration has been used.
