Temperature calibration is a term used to describe an evolution in measurement activities when the affects of temperature must be accounted for, or even nullified, when making measurements. Temperature affects a great many measurements, and its affects must be accounted for if accuracy in any measurements is to be had. It could also be applied to the chemistry of materials where an action or a reaction requires mixtures whose ingredients are blended in proportions that are temperature dependent. The quality and the productivity of countless industries depend on accuracy in so many areas of production or service. Calibration is a huge business within industry because of the demand for accuracy in any instruments that are used to measure anything. Many tens, or even hundreds of millions of dollars are spent annually on calibration activities. And thermal (or temperature) calibration is a chunk of that. Why not take a quick look at what calibration is all about? A link is provided to the calibration article posted by our friends at Wikipedia, where knowledge is free.

Calibration is the intercomarison and adjustment (if necessary) of a device with a "standard" of known higher accuracy. A quick test of temperature calibration are the freezing and boiling points of water (which varies somewhat based on altitude). Pressure is tougher and needs to be done by a calibration laboratory.

On the burettes (also pipettes, volumetric flasks, etc.) is marked the calibration temperature; but this temperature is 20 0C.

It should but it probably will not because of: experimental error measurement error calibration error (zero error)
