How would I find the diameter of a bore (tube) in a thermometer if I have the mercury expanding about 2 cm in length for 10 degrees C. rise in temperature and that the volume of mercury in the bulb is 0.1 cubic meter?
The volumetric coefficient of expansion of Mercury is b = 0.000181/C
(e.g. web page
Starting from volume V0 = 0.1 cubic meter, the temperature rise of dt=10 C would cause the ...
