-Primary Test: Connect the Extra-Long Temperature Probe and run the data-collection program. Hold the tip of the sensor in your hand and check for the temperature readings to change.
The probe will not be damaged when placed in any of the following chemicals for several minutes at a time:
ethylene glycol (antifreeze)
glacial acetic acid
sodium hydroxide (2M)
sulfuric acid (3M)
