7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 60 The methodology adopted was to first develop a temperature measurement system which could show some change in its characteristics (property) due to heat interactions taking place with it. Such systems are called thermometers, the characteristics of property which shows change in its value is termed thermometric property and the substance which shows change in its thermometric property is called thermometric substance. Science that deals with the temperature and its measurement is called thermometry.

2 PRINCIPLE OF TEMPERATURE MEASUREMENT AND ZEROTH LAW OF THERMODYNAMICS After the identification of ‘Temperature’ as a thermodynamic property for quantification of the energy interactions the big question was its estimation. Based on the relative degree of coldness/hotness concept it was concluded that the absolute value of temperature is difficult to be described. Hence it was mooted Zeroth Law of Thermodynamics ___________________________________________________ 41 to make temperature estimations in reference to certain widely acceptable known thermal states of the substances.
