Question #112842

The ice point and steam point on a thermometer are found to be 96.0mm apart. What temperature is recorded when the length of mercury thread is 33.6mm above the ice point mark

Expert's answer

As per the question,

The ice point on the thermometer =96.0mm

recorded length of the mercury =33.6mm

Let the required temperature is x,

"\\dfrac{x-0}{100-0}=\\dfrac{33.6-0}{96-0}"

"\\Rightarrow x=\\dfrac{33.6\\times 100}{96}^\\circ C"

"x=35^\\circ C"
