It is named after Galileo Galilei because he discovered the principle on which this thermometer is based—that the density of a liquid changes in proportion to its temperature. The thermometer is a straightforward, fairly reliable thermometer, but today is seen more as a talking point and is mainly used for decoration and general observations. You can tell the temperature by reading the medallion on the middle floating sphere, if there are clusters of spheres at the top and the bottom of the tube, or with a few other tricks, depending on the configuration of the spheres. The Galileo thermometer consists of a sealed glass tube that is filled with water and several floating bubbles.

Their benefits go beyond helping you prepare proper clothes or improving the quality of indoor plants. What you have to do is simply look at the lowest ball that is floating while ignoring those tags that had sunk to the bottom of the container.The English translation of this work (1684) describes the device ('The Fifth Thermometer') as 'slow and lazy', a description that is reflected in an alternative Italian name for the invention, the termometro lento (slow thermometer). The barometric tube is fixed to a wooden board and runs down into a vessel serving as a cistern for the barometer. As the temperature changes, these orbs rise and fall to indicate the current ambient temperature (within the range of 64˚F - 80˚F). The glass Galileo thermometer with globe storm glass combines style and functionality as a beautiful accent piece for any home or office. The key is to not hold the thermometer in your hands because your hands will warm it up and give a skewed reading.

We are currently unable to deliver to EU addresses due to the high and unpredictable costs, customs charges, and courier handling fees. The spheres sink in high temperatures because as the liquid in the tube heats up, it becomes less dense than the spheres. The clear liquid in a Galileo thermometer is ethanol, a colorless volatile liquid with very little odor.The former one, tympanic thermometers, are usually used for adults and older kids, and they care about the position of testing. This article has been fact-checked, ensuring the accuracy of any cited facts and confirming the authority of its sources. This is a good way to demonstrate using the thermometer, especially if you’re doing it in a classroom.

tall, the Galileo Thermometer holds seven floating globes in total – with the lowest floating globe indicating the current temperature. These 4 or 5-star reviews represent the opinions of the individuals who posted them and do not reflect the views of Etsy. Based on this principle, the colored glass spheres inside the glass Galileo thermometer have been precisely weighted so that they respond to temperature changes. It’s comprised of multiple glass spheres each filled with a colored liquid mixture which often contains alcohol but can even be simply water with food coloring added. Whether you're looking for a perfect gift to spruce up your friend's garden, or if you need a housewarming present, Lily's Home has something for everyone!The bubbles are calibrated by adding a certain amount of fluid to them so that they have the exact same density. It contains small glass vessels of varying densities which rise or fall throughout the day to indicate the temperature.
