by, or employed in, thermochemistry.
(Ther`mo*chem"is*try) n. [Thermo- + chemistry.] That branch of chemical science
which includes the investigation of the various relations existing between chemical action and that manifestation
of force termed heat, or the determination of the heat evolved by, or employed in, chemical actions.
(Ther*moch"ro*sy) n. [Thermo- + Gr. coloring.] (Physics) The property possessed by
heat of being composed, like light, of rays of different degrees of refrangibility, which are unequal in rate
or degree of transmission through diathermic substances.
(Ther"mo*cur`rent) n. [Thermo- + current.] (Physics) A current, as of electricity, developed,
or set in motion, by the action of heat.
Thermodynamic function. See Heat weight, under Heat.
(Ther`mo*dy*nam"ic) a. [Thermo- + dynamic.] (Physics) Relating to thermodynamics; caused
or operated by force due to the application of heat.
(Ther`mo*dy*nam"ics) n. The science which treats of the mechanical action or relations
(Ther`mo*e*lec"tric) a. (Physics) Pertaining to thermoelectricity; as, thermoelectric
(Ther`mo*e`lec*tric"i*ty) n. [Thermo- + electricity: cf. F. thermoélectricité.] (Physics)
Electricity developed in the action of heat. See the Note under Electricity.
(Ther`mo*e`lec*trom"e*ter) n. [Thermo- + electrometer.] (Physics) An instrument
for measuring the strength of an electric current in the heat which it produces, or for determining the
heat developed by such a current.
(Ther"mo*gen) n. [Thermo- + - gen.] (Old Chem.) Caloric; heat; regarded as a material but
(Ther`mo*gen"ic) a. (Physiol.) Relating to heat, or to the production of heat; producing
heat; thermogenous; as, the thermogenic tissues.
(Ther*mog"e*nous) a. [Thermo- + -genous.] (Physiol.) Producing heat; thermogenic.
(Ther"mo*graph) n. [Thermo- + - graph.] (Physics) An instrument for automatically recording
indications of the variation of temperature.

caused by the action of heat; the relation of heat to magnetism.
(Ther*mom"e*ter) n. [Thermo- + -meter: cf. F. thermomètre. See Thermal.] (Physics) An
instrument for measuring temperature, founded on the principle that changes of temperature in bodies
are accompanied by proportional changes in their volumes or dimensions.
