How do Vapor Tension Thermometers work?

Vapor Tension Thermometers also known as Vapor Pressure Thermometers essentially use a pressure gauge to measure the vapor pressure of a liquid. The pressure of the gas is converted to temperature by means of a Bourden gauge which represents temperature over calibrated scale having cramped rulings.

The following table is a list of a variety of substances ordered by increasing vapor pressure (in absolute units) with temperature also shown.
