After putting a HOBO in my fridge, something unexpected happened…

The monitoring reveled very interesting temperatures about my refrigerator. I had no idea the coolest point would be midday when the door had been opened and closed multiple times. The high point around 6 pm is expected as the oven/stove was in use which is only about one foot away from the refrigerator. The expected [...]
Overview: The specific objective given to us for this assignment is to examine the temperature patterns that exist over a 24 hour period inside our home refrigerator. The point of this exercise is to delve deeply into the functioning of one tiny system in order to highlight the inherent variability, unpredictability and uncertainty that exist [...]
The objective of this assignment was to better understand how machines work and how the use electricity on a daily basis. This information can help develop a better understanding of buildings, which store many similar machines, work.
The objective of this project was to become comfortable with tools used to monitor temperature in our environment. Temperature and temperature change can give insight into mechanical and natural changes that occur in buildings daily. To become comfortable with a HOBO, a device used to read temperature, we examined the temperature of our refrigerator over [...]
The objective of this assignment is to study the refrigerator’s temperature patterns in a 24 hour cycle, and compared it to the estimated curve.
For the most part, my refrigerator was acting normal by having the ideal temperature range from 33.1 to 37.7 degrees Fahrenheit. From last class, I had assumed that there would be an alternating pattern that ranged from 30 to 38 degrees Fahrenheit for every hour. Apparently the compressor shifts the temperature for every ten minutes [...]
In Architecture 244 (The Secret Life of Buildings), the first task we were assigned was to predict, measure, and analyze the thermal conditions of our home refrigerator over the course of 24 hours (midnight to midnight). In class, we were given a paper with a grid, and were asked to estimate the fluctuations of temperature [...]
