What is the reality that the reading on the thermometer represents? 15 So it is perhaps convenient to sidestep the issue of empirical realism, of what constitutes the reality,16 and see calibration simply as the mapping between two technological models. 17 It is, after all, models that are being Calibration 27 compared against one another rather than theories being compared against pure observations. 18 The thermometer amplifies four basic components of the problem of calibration. The first component is a standard, primary, or reference model that involves ice, water, kettle, and vapor.

Calibration is the technical necessity to ensure that the device initially is fit for context. It is at the core of the inauguration ritual, relates to the functioning of the device, and constitutes a major component in designing for usability and for the user experience. Standards Before addressing calibration as a way of dealing with discrepant phenomena, I need to draw attention to the converse of discrepancy—that is, conforming to a standard. Calibration correlates a device to a standard. Considerations of conformity and compliance to a standard may further frustrate inconspicuous operation.

14 The warmer the mercury gets the more it expands, and the higher it moves up the tube. Marks or graduations on or adjacent to the tube indicate how warm it is in the room or other medium. As everyone knows, the scale is called a “temperature scale,” and the thermometer indicates the temperature. The scale on this prototypic thermometer is decided by a simple procedure. The bulb end of the thermometer is placed in ice water for a few seconds. The level of the mercury in the tube is marked at zero degrees centigrade.
