Immerse one junction in a mixture of ice and water; immerse the other in boiling water, and note the deflection produced. Now use the hot junction to estimate the temperature of molten solder, and the temperature produced at distances of 5 cm, 2 cm, 1 cm and 0-5 cm along a copper wire as the result of a normal soldering operation. What is a satisfactory length of pigtail to leave on a delicate component when soldering it into a circuit ? (If available, an electronic millivoltmeter, or a special low-resistance moving coil meter intended for thermocouple thermometry may be used instead of the recording potentiometer.
In this device the meter is replaced by a very sensitive electronic amplifier, whose output drives a small electric motor, and this slides the moving point along the wire. f. Ε are not equal, the motor will run until they become equal, and this is the desired condition of balance. The moving point also carries a pen, which moves across a chart, and this is driven forward by a clockwork movement. f. Ε is kept. Such instruments are widely used in research and industry; they are discussed further in Chapter 27.

When current is drawn from a battery, the voltage measured at its terminals falls; we may represent such a battery as a perfect constant voltage source with a resistance in series with it, as shown for example in Fig. 1.
