An ice bath test is an examination performed to evaluate if a thermometer works properly or whether it may have some issues. Do you have a thermometer and are aware of whether it works properly or not? Or perhaps, you want to check its accuracy in temperature reading? Whatever the reason, for evaluating the thermometer’s accuracy it must be tested correctly. This includes what you test the thermometer in and where it is placed during the test.
Wondering how you can do it? Don’t panic. The process is simple. The ice bath test is the simplest and easiest way to determine if a thermometer is accurate or not. A good and accurate thermometer will read 32°F (0°C) in a properly made ice bath if your experiment is performed correctly.
