The specific volume of mercury is given by the equation. V=specific volume V(T) = V(0 C)*(1+(1.82*10^-4)T + (7.8*10^-9)T^2) in degrees celsius Suppose you take an unlabeled mecury-in-glass- thermometer, mark 0.01C and 100C for the triple point and normal boiling point of water, and then place intermediate temperature points by linear interpolation. Because the non-linear expansion of mercury, your temperature scale will differ a little from the true Celsius scale. What is the maximum error of the linearly marked thermometer?

Use excel to plot this, find the largest distance from the line to the curve It'll look something like this, now just use some math
