Temperature at Library

Previous Up Next

I spooled out about 300 meters of cable along sidewalks, to the ledge above the book depository on the south side of Hale Library, where I left a 1-Wire thermometer overnight. Despite the slowed-down rise and fall times of the voltage, I was able to read the temperature from the opposite end of the cable, at a computer in Cardwell Hall, the physics building. The only errors were some power failures at about the time of the temperature spike; it is likely that someone picked up the thermometer incorrectly.
