Seller: Top-Rated Seller newage-living (27,432) 99.9%, Location: Newquay, Cornwall, Ships to: GB, Item: 113407501238 Galileo Thermometer based on an idea by Galileo Galilei (1564-1642). Searching for a way to measure exact temperatures, Galileo discovered this fascinating method. He placed several exactly weighted balls in a cylinder filled with a certain liquid. He found that the balls rose or fell according to the current temperature. By this method he was able to determine the correct temperature. This thermometer works on the principle discovered by Galileo that the density of a liquid changes as temperature varies. Each of the glass balls is exactly weighted by partially filling the spheres with liquid. When the temperature rises, the liquid in the glass cylinder becomes less dense, and the heavier balls sink slowing to the bottom. Each thermometer is approx 30cm tall and comes attractively boxed.
