    Galileo Thermometer Experiments

      Galilean Thermometer Definition

      A Galileo thermometer is a thermometer made of a vertical sealed glass cylinder containing a transparent liquid and a few objects whose slighty different densities are designed to sink or float in sequence as the liquid is warmed or cooled by the surrounding environment and thus function as a temperature indicator.
