Galileo Thermometer (17" Tall)

These unusual thermometers contain colorful orbs which rise and fall to indicate the current temperature. Crafted of high quality glass and individually calibrated to achieve an accuracy of 2F, these thermometers are timeless works of art. The tag on the lowest sphere in the top group indicates the current temperature.Galileo Galilei (1564 - 1642) was an Italian physicist, mathematician, astronomer, and philosopher who played a major role in the Scientific Revolution. His findings provided the framework for Newton's laws of motion and Einstein's theory of relativity. His discovery that the density of a liquid changes in proportion to its temperature, inspired the invention and explains the accuracy of the "Galileo Thermometer".

21 Inch Liquid Galileo Thermometer with Ten Multi-Color Floats and Gold Tags

Galileo Thermometers are magnificent creations that make Galileo's 400 year old principle of relative density a functional reality. An accurate indoor thermometer encased in brilliant glass, the Galileo is the point at which art meets science. Galileo Thermometers add sparkle and focus to any setting: Galileo Thermometers are precisely manufactured. Each of the liquid-filled floats weighs grams more than the one above it in the cylinder to ensure a stately and orderly procession of ups and downs as the temperature changes. To accomplish this balancing, the tags on which the temperature is marked are attached by hand. The fluid in the floats and the cylinder has to be exactly the same density for the thermometer to function properly. The fluid is non-toxic and non-hazardous, an inert oil/hydrocarbon mixture like mineral oil: We double pack each Galileo Thermometer to protect from damage in shipping. The cylinder walls are laboratory grade glass, so sturdiness isn't an issue. cardboard box sleeve surrounds a form-fitted foam case that virtually guarantees safe arrival: This fascinating, functional instrument is the point at which science meets art. Four hundred years ago Galileo discovered that specifically weighted floating bubbles would predictable rise or sink in a liquid as the temperature of that liquid is changed. These decorative glass reproductions of Galileo's discovery have glass floats precisely weighted 6 gram increments suspended in a clear, environmentally safe, non-toxic liquid. Simply read the tag on the lowest floating bubble to read the temperature: The 21 inch measures every 4 degrees from 60 F to 96 F and is accurate to within 2 degrees with ten floats.

25 Inch Outdoor Liquid Galileo Thermometer with Ten Multi-Color Floats and Gold Tags

This thermometer is designed to be used both indoors and outdoors. Galileo Thermometers are magnificent creations that make Galileo's 400 year old principle of relative density a functional reality. Each Thermometer is encased in brilliant glass with many multi-color floating balls. A gold tag that displays a temperature in Fahrenheit hangs beneath each ball. The Galileo Thermometer is the point at which art meets science. Galileo Thermometers are precisely manufactured. Each of the liquid-filled floats weighs exactly.006 grams more than the one above it. Precise measurements of the liquid filled balls ensure a stately and orderly procession of ups and downs as the temperature changes. How do I read the temperature? To tell the temperature, you read the tag on the lowest of the floating balls. This is Galileo's 400 year old principle of fluid density at work. As the temperature of the fluid in the cylinder increases, the pressure drops and the liquid becomes less dense. When the precisely measured floats reach their specific calibrated temperature they drop. As the temperature of the liquid cools, the process is reversed and the floats rise from the bottom of the cylinder. How accurate is this Galileo thermometer? It has temperature gradients of 5 F from 55 F to 100 F and is accurate to within 5 . This thermometer is covered by a two year limited warranty covering workmanship and manufacturers defects. Please see the River City Clocks Warranty Page for more information about the warranty. Features: Functional and decorative. It has temperature gradients of 5 F from 55 F to 100 F and is accurate to within 5 . Can be used both indoors and outdoors. Tags beneath each ball indicate the temperature. Two year warranty included. Warranty: Two year limited warranty covering workmanship and manufacturers defects.

AcuRite 00795 Galileo Thermometer with Glass Globe Barometer

A lovely conversation starter and a fun example of early scientific measurement, this Galileo thermometer and barometer set from Chaney Instrument engages the eye while monitoring the weather. Designed for approximate interpretation of temperature and general prediction of fair or foul weather, the set features glass instruments that rely on the principles of buoyancy and air pressure for their function. In the thermometer, the brightly colored internal spheres rise and lower with fluctuations in temperature and corresponding density. The ball-shaped barometer shifts liquid to and from its curved spout in response to changes in the air. Both pieces are beautifully shaped, and the barometer features a lovely etching of the Earths continents. A wooden base makes the set easily displayable on desk or bookshelf. Delightful for gift giving, the unit measures approximately 8 inches long and stands 8 inches high. Size: 13.1 x 9.5 x 5.6 inches - Most orders will ship in 3 to 5 business days.
