Answer to Question #66761 in Molecular Physics | Thermodynamics for Jitender kumar
Explain the working of a platinum resistance thermometer with the help of a neat and labelled diagram.
Platinum was proposed by Sir William Siemens as an element for resistance temperature detector at the Bakerian lecture in 1871: it is a noble metal and has the most stable resistance–temperature relationship over the largest temperature range. Nickel elements have a limited temperature range because the amount of change in resistance per degree of change in temperature becomes very non-linear at temperatures over 572 °F (300 °C). Copper has a very linear resistance–temperature relationship; however, copper oxidizes at moderate temperatures and cannot be used over 302 °F (150 °C).
I am writing to express my gratitude for all the help this website offered to me in times of need. I believe this website is not a "cheating" source for "lazy" students, but an important source for those of us who are burdened with more than we can bear, have little to no facilities to handle the stress and workload, and are in serious need of help given at an affordable price. Thank you so very much to all those involved with this website who have helped students like me in desperate need.
