To determine

Explain about the thermocouple and its operation.

Explanation of Solution

Description:

Thermocouple is a device that measures the temperature. It consists of two dissimilar metals that are connected together to form a closed circuit. The combination of metals used for the thermocouple is copper-nickel alloy and chrome-iron alloy, iron and copper, platinum and platinum-rhodium alloy, copper and iron-constantan, or chromel and alumel. The temperature involved in the system decides the types of metal combination to be used for the thermocouple.

Refer Figure 24-5 in the textbook for the principle of a thermocouple. From the figure, the metal combination forms two junctions at the ends of the thermocouple. The temperature difference must exist between the metal junctions in order to operate the thermocouple...
