Annotation -
Subject provides basic information on methods of measurements of selected physico-chemical quantities. Selected quantities (temperature, pressure, volume/density, thermal quantities) are basic quantities needed as input for classical thermodynamics employed for evaluation of non-measurable thermodynamic properties of systems.
