Problem 1DQ

Explain why it would not make sense to use a full-size glass thermometer to measure the temperature of a thimbleful of hot water.

Step-by-Step Solution:

Solution 1DQ Step 1: If we are dipping a thermometer in the hot water, heat exchange will occur from hot water to the glass and then to the mercury inside the glass. The mercury will thus expand and we will get the corresponding reading. If we are using a full size glass thermometer, the glass material will absorb some amount heat from the hot water. So, it will not show an accurate reading corresponds to the temperature.
