Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Anonymous on Tuesday, December 11, 2012 at 11:00am.

At the bottom of an old mercury-in-glass thermometer is a 43-mm3 reservoir filled with mercury. When the thermometer was placed under your tongue, the warmed mercury would expand into a very narrow cylindrical channel, called a capillary, whose radius was 1.9 10-2 mm. Marks were placed along the capillary that indicated the temperature. Ignore the thermal expansion of the glass and determine how far (in mm) the mercury would expand into the capillary when the temperature changed by 1.0 C.
