    - The above given components represent a measurement system which measures the hot body temperature.

    - Every measurement system consists of three main stages as sensor stage, signal processor stage and output stage.

    - Thermocouple is used to measures the temperature of hot body.

    - Therefore, hot body here is the measurand and the sensor stage which is in direct contact with the measurand consists of thermocouple.

    - Amplifier and converters are used for signal processing at the signal processor stage.

    - As the display system is used to show the output of measurement system, it represents the output stage and comes at the end of the block diagram representation of measurement system.

    - Therefore, the given components can be represented in measurement system as follows:

    - Hot body----Thermocouple-----Amplifier and converter-----Display system
