Question
Dear Prof Steve

Is it possible to check the temperature in Snow using thermometer mostly observed in Mountains and Hillstations?

Thanks
Prashant

Answer
Hello Prashant,

There are thermometers made for many situations. If a standard thermometer will not work in the situation you are thinking about, I am sure there is a type that would work. This link will show you the many types available from just this one source.

Expertise

I would be delighted to help with questions up through the first year of college Physics. Particularly Electricity, Electronics and Newtonian Mechanics (motion, acceleration etc.). I decline questions on relativity and Atomic Physics. I also could discuss the Space Shuttle and space flight in general.

Experience

I have a BS in Physics and an MS in Electrical Engineering. I am retired now. My professional career was in Electrical Engineering with considerable time spent working with accelerometers, gyroscopes and flight dynamics (Physics related topics) while working on the Space Shuttle. I gave formal classroom lessons to technical co-workers periodically over a several year period.
