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.

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