Hygrometer

Igrometro a quadrante

This instrument is used for measuring the amount of moisture in the air. More compact in shape and more easily readable than the other hygrometer shown, it is based on the same principle whereby a hygroscopic substance and wax weigh differently from each other when a variation in the amount of water in the air is recorded.

Codex Atlanticus, sheet 675
