I'm new to electronics but I picked up a bunch of components at a yard sale, so I've been trying to make various simple projects.

I have a question about one particular component. Can somebody tell me what this component is in the picture? It looks like it might be some type of temperature probe.BE45A1A7-5276-4294-B05B-028A1FB09E53.jpeg

Either a thermocouple or a thermistor or heater element.

Details on how to test which is which and if thermistor, what type on the internet.

Most likely even a number stamped on the body of it somewhere which would identify it.

Unfortunately there's nothing stamped on it, but thanks for the ideas on what it could be. That gives me some direction to go in. I'm going to do when you recommended it and try to figure it out
