An air thermometer can be constructed by using a glass bubble attached to a piece of small-diamter glass tubing. The tubing contains a small amount of colored water that rises when the temperature increases and the trapped air expands. You want a 0.20 cm3 change in volume to equal a 1° C change in temperature. What total volume of air at 20° C should be trapped in the apparatus below the liquid?
