## Laellu one year ago Suppose a mercury thermometer contains 3.250g of mercury and has a capillary that is 0.180mm in diameter. How far does the mercury rise in the capillary when the temperature changes from 0.0 ∘C to 25.0 ∘C? The density of mercury at these temperatures is 13.596 g/cm3 and 13.534 g/cm3, respectively.

Welcome to OpenStudy. I believe you can find the volume using d=m/V and then use the formula for a cylinder(the capillary) V=pi*r^2*h to find the height.

2. JoannaBlackwelder

Yes, find the height at each temp and find the difference in height for the rise.

3. Laellu

Ohhh that make sense now. Thank you very much.

You're very welcome. It was more of a math question actually when you look at it :) Have a good night
