Galileo Thermometer

Product Details Liquid-filled, hand blown, glass spheres rise or sink according to temperature. A unique desk toy. Makes a great gift! 8 liquid-filled spheres indicate temperatures between 64-92 degrees Fahrenheit. Product Description Size: 17" Galileo Thermometer is a marriage of science and art. Amazing! 400+ years ago, Galileo discovered that as a liquid's temperature changes, so will an object's flotation in it... the relative density. That's the science behind this cool Thermometer! Five hand-blown glass spheres (8 in 17" unit), each fitted with a metal medallion, float in a craftsman-blown cylinder. They rise and fall. You read the lowest sphere near the top, determining the room temperature to about 1 degree accuracy. Fascinating laws of physics! State Size. 11"h: 2 1/4" diam. base, 13 ozs. 13"h.: 2 7/8" diam. base, 1 lb., 7 ozs. 17"h.: 3" diam. base, 1 lb., 14 ozs. Order Today! Galileo Thermometer SKU: ADIB0066SFPHS

Everyone can appreciate the simple beauty of colorful orbs floating in a glass cylinder. Developed by Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) this thermometer is based on the law of physics which states:"The specific gravity of liquids change as they expand at different temperatures. " As the temperature rises, the liquid expands. Its specific gravity decreases and the spheres sink. The current temperature is indicated by the lowest floating glass sphere in cylinder. 11" has 5 spheres 14" has 7 spheres 17" has 10 spheres Each hand-blown ball differs in weight by only two thousandths of a gram Calibrated to achieve an accuracy of 1/2 degree F The temperature is shown on gold-plated indicator medallions The liquid within is environmentally safe, biodegradable and ozone friendly Highly educational and entertaining A fantastic gift for the person who is hard to buy for Becomes a conversational piece - Most orders ship in 3 to 5 business days.

Galileo Thermometer, 17 Inch Tall, Wood Framed, Cherry Finish

Product Details Ideal gift Gold Tags Indicates Temperature in Fahrenheit Hand blown glass with 10 glass spheres Temperature Range is from 60F To 96F, In 4 Increments Product Description 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. Galileos add sparkle and focus to any setting: Galileos are precisely manufactured. Each of the liquid-filled floats weighs exactly.006 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. 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: Galileos are carefully packaged. The cylinder walls are laboratory grade glass, so sturdiness isn't an issue. A 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 in.006 gram increments suspended in a clear, environmentally safe, non-toxic liquid. Simply read the tag on the lowest floating bubble to read the temperature - Each tag is marked in Fahrenheit on both sides of the tag. The 17 inch measures every 4 degrees from 60 F to 94 F and is accurate to within 2 degrees with ten floats. SKU: ADIB002PFKPF8

WS-GA1141305 13" Galileo Thermometer with 5 Glass Balls and Gold Tags

Product Details The Galileo thermometer consists of a sealed glass tube that is filled with liquid and several floating bubbles. The bubbles are glass spheres filled The Galileo thermometer consists of a sealed glass tube that is filled with liquid and floating bubbles. Attached to each bubble is a little metal tag that indicates a temperature. These metal tags are calibrated counterweights. The weight of each tag is slightly different from the others. The bubbles are calibrated by adding a certain amount of fluid to them so that they have the exact same density. So, after the weighted tags are attached to the bubbles, each differs very slightly in density. As the temperature of the air outside the thermometer changes, so does the temperature of the liquid surrounding the bubbles. As the temperature of the liquid changes, it either expands or contracts. Includes one year factory warranty from Ambient Weather. Product Description Overall height: 13" tall Gold Tags Limited 2 year manufacturer warranty Temperature gradients of 4 degrees from 64 to 80 degrees Fahrenheit and is accurate to within 2.5 degrees SKU: ADIB004P0KUVK
