How Do Temperature Gauges Work?
Temperature gauges work by using materials that change in response to temperature. One common type is a bimetallic thermometer with a strip made of two different metals bonded together. When the temperature changes, the metals expand or contract at different rates, causing the strip to bend. This movement is connected to a pointer that shows the temperature on a scale.
Another type is a thermocouple, which generates a voltage when two different metals are joined at different temperatures. The voltage corresponds to the temperature. Resistance temperature detectors (RTDs) measure changes in electrical resistance to determine temperature.
