    Implemented the circuit in the attachment on bread board.
    At room temperature, Vout= 0.11V
    Hold LM35(temperature increase), Vout= 0.12,0.13,0.15V
    Temp(oC)= Vout*100
    I don't understand how the ckt works? and if pot value changes how output varies and why?

    The LM35 is a temperature sensor. It outputs a voltage proportional to temperature. Read the datasheet to understand this chip.

    The LM393 is a comparator. It compares the voltage from the LM35 (- input of comparator) to a reference voltage (+ input). The reference voltage can be adjusted by the potentiometer. Whenever the output of the voltage sensor is higher than the reference voltage, the output of the comparator goes low.
