Problem 13E

Thermometers in a physics lab often use gas rather than mercury. Whereas changes in volume indicate temperature in a mercury thermometer, what changes in a gas do you think indicate temperature in a gas thermometer?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Answer: Step1: A gas thermometer measures t emperature by the variation in volume or pressure of a gas. Step2: As the gas expands on heating so its volume and pressure changes.
