Joyana ,firstly I assume you know the answers to these questions.
1.What is a thermocouple?
2.What is the thermometric property of a thermocouple in other words what changes as the temperature changes?
3.How are thermocouples set up and used and how is the thermometric property measured?
4.What is meant by "calibrating a thermocouple system"?
If you don't know the answers then do some research.If you get stuck on anything then report back here showing that you have made an attempt at a solution.
