    The length of a mercury column in a particular mercury-in-glass thermometer is 10.00 cm when the column is in thermal contact with H20 at its triple point.Consider the length of the column as the thermometric parameter X and let y be the temperature determined by this thermometer.

    Could you please explain how to calculate the temperature measured when the length of the column is 8 cm, and to calculate the length of mercury at steam point.
