Gillespie news: Detecting Data Loggers

Measuring the temperature inside the freezer

Measuring the temperature inside the freezer

Hi our names are Nojus and Reiss. We have recently been working with the data loggers. We have seen fantastic freezing points and bubbling boiling points. Carole asked us to see which is the coldest and the hottest object in the lab. The hottest object in the lab is the radiator. We measured the radiator’s temperature in degrees Celcius. It was 40.1oC. The freezer was -9.6oC. We were surprised that the temperature went down so rapidly when we put it in the freezer. We also measured Reiss’s armpit and it was 37.5oC, and that’s as it should be.

Here is our scale of temperatures that we measured:
