A Few Thermometer Related Questions

Postby waterdragon321 » January 12th, 2019, 3:40 pm

Hey, Science Olympiad! I had a few questions related to my thermometer and measurements.


1. Are we allowed to use our own thermometer?
2. If 1. is correct, are we allowed to use a thermometer with a digital reading & thermo-couple?
3. Do our temperature readings and predictions include decimal points?
4. Does the thermometer stay in the device during the experiment?

Thank you!

1. Yes
2. yes
3. it depends what thermometer the es uses, but i think they would use ones with decimal points.
4. It could, depending on Event Supervisor.
