Refer to the drawing of a simple chromel-alumel thermocouple circuit (see figure below).
Initially, the temperature instrument indicates 350°F.
A steam leak inside the reactor building (RB) increases the temperature of the thermocouple connection head, reference junction panel, and extension wires inside the RB from 120°F to 160°F.
The temperature at the location measured by the thermocouple remains the same.
What is the resulting temperature indication?
