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.
Last update: TAJ403 (25.09.2013)
Aim of the course -

After passing successfully the subject a student should have an overall knowledge on methods for measurement of temperature, pressure, volume/density, and thermal properties. In practice he/she should be able to select a proper method for a particular conditions and requirements.
