Resistance thermometer: Quiz


Question 1: Resistance thermometers, also called resistance temperature detectors or resistive thermal devices (RTDs), are temperature sensors that exploit the predictable change in ________ of some materials with changing temperature.
Electric currentElectrical resistanceElectrical impedanceElectrical conduction

Question 2: These sensors work up to 961.78 °C and are used in the SPRT’s that define ________
HeliumOxygenInternational Temperature Scale of 1990Hydrogen

Question 3: They are slowly replacing the use of ________ in many industrial applications below 600 °C, due to higher accuracy and repeatability.

Question 4: The application of the tendency of electrical conductors to increase their electrical resistance with rising temperature was first described by Sir William Siemens at the Bakerian Lecture of 1871 before the Royal Society of ________.
Great BritainEnglandScotlandUnited Kingdom

Question 5: ________ have a range of −180 to 2,320 °C (-292 to 4,208 °F),[1] so for extremely high temperatures they are the only contact temperature measurement choice.

Question 6: This design is similar to that of a SPRT, the primary standard which ________ is based on, while still providing the durability necessary for an industrial process.
OxygenHydrogenHeliumInternational Temperature Scale of 1990

Question 7: As they are almost invariably made of ________, they are often called platinum resistance thermometers (PRTs).

Question 8: Such devices have improved in performance although the different expansion rates of the substrate and platinum give "________" effects and stability problems.
