If you stake out a plot of land with a steel tape on a very hot day, the actual amount of land you will have will be A) smaller than measured. B) larger than measured. C) correct. Answer: B Due to the thermal expansion of the steel, the tic marks on it would be more widely spaced than usual. So a measurement of say 10cm on the expanded tape would represent a larger distance than 10cm.
If glass expanded more than mercury, then the column of mercury in a mercury thermometer would rise when the temperature A) increases. B) decreases. C) neither of these Answer: B If the dominant expansion is that of the glass, then for mercury to rise in it, the glass would be contracting (so it squeezes the mercury upwards), i.e. the temperature would be decreasing.

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
