Thermometers and Temperature Scales Temperature is a measure of how hot or cold something is. Thermometers are instruments designed to measure temperature. In order to do this, they take advantage of some property of matter that changes with temperature. Most materials expand when heated.
Common thermometers used today include the liquid-in-glass type and the bimetallic strip. Thermometers and Temperature Scales
Thermal Physics A bimetallic strip, consisting of metal G on the top and metal H on the bottom, is rigidly attached to a wall at the left as shown. In the diagram. The coefficient of linear thermal expansion for metal G is greater than that of metal H. If the strip is uniformly heated, it will (A) curve upward. (B) curve downward. (C) remain horizontal, but get longer. (D) bend in the middle.

Summary Temperature is a measure of how hot or cold something is, and is measured by thermometers. There are three temperature scales in use: Celsius, Fahrenheit, and Kelvin. When heated, a solid will get longer by a fraction given by the coefficient of linear expansion. The fractional change in volume of gases, liquids, and solids is given by the coefficient of volume expansion.
