Can anyone tell me how to use my new wet bulb thermometer :?: It came with no instructions. I know how to get the relitave humidity compared to the regular thermometer, but how do I get the wet bulb one to be wet bulb :?: It has a normal looking vertical themometer piece and a glass tube running perpendicular to that at the bottom so the bulb sits in it. Do I fill the glass tube with water? Or Ive seen other wet bulb thermometers with wicks in them? Ive never seen one like this before and the people who sold it to me dont know either :roll:
Thanks
Caroline :D

I think you are on the right track. You will probably need a wick. You can buy them at:

It measures evaporation, so you can't just dunk the thermometer in water. Fill the glass tube with H2O, and slip on a wick
