How does a wet and dry bulb thermometer work?
Wet and dry bulb thermometer:
- It has two identical thermometers fixed to a wooden frame.
- A dry thermometer has the bulb exposed to air.
- A wet thermometer has the bulb covered with a muslin cloth which is dipped in water.
- It is used to measure the relative humidity of temperature.
- When air is saturated, evaporation stops and the two bulbs show the same reading.
