When a thermometer is taken from the melting ice to a warm liquid, the mercury level rises to two-fifth of the distance between the lower and the upper fixed points.  Find the temperature of the liquid (i) in  and (ii) in K.

Answer:

1. On Celsius scale, the interval between the lower and the upper fixed points = 1000C

Therefore, th of the interval between the fixed points =

Since the lower fixed point is 00C, hence the temperature of warm liquid = 400C

2. Now t = 400C, T =?

On Kelvin scale, T = 273 + t = 273 + 40 = 313 K
