Electrical Noise and the Measurement of Absolute Temperature, Boltzmann's Constant and Avogadro's Number.
Ericson, T. J.
Physics Education, v23 n2 p112-16 Mar 1988
Describes an apparatus capable of measuring absolute temperatures of a tungsten filament bulb up to normal running temperature and measuring Botzmann's constant to an accuracy of a few percent. Shows that electrical noise techniques are convenient to demonstrate how the concept of temperature is related to the micro- and macroscopic world. (CW)
