INST 35050 - Temperature Lab

2 CR
The student will become familiar with a temperature control unit. This unit is designed to simulate different heating and cooling cycles found in industrial environments. The student will also become familiar with different forms of energy, the definition of temperature, and the different scales used to measure it. Thermodynamics principles will also be discussed and their use in measuring temperature.

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Understand how the temperature control unit functions.
  2. Understand the fundamentals of heating and cooling fluids.
  3. Use a trend recorder.
  4. Understand the function of Resistance Temperature Detectors (RTD) and thermocouples.
  5. Explain the function of heat exchanges.
  6. Accurately measure temperature.
