Question 64. Asked on :30 September 2020:06:04:35 PM

#### Why are loops provided in long metal pipes used for cappying oil and any other liquid over long distances?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermal Properties Of Matter

Shruti Srivastva
The loops in metal pipes are provided in order to avoid the strain that would develop in the pipes when the temperature changes and hence the pressure of liquids in them changes.

Question 65. Asked on :30 September 2020:06:02:41 PM

#### Why a small gap is left between the iron rails of railway tracks?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermal Properties Of Matter

Shruti Srivastva
If no gap is let between the iron rails, the rails may bend due to expansion in summer and the train may get derailed.

Question 67. Asked on :30 September 2020:05:59:18 PM

#### Why does a solid expand on heating?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermal Properties Of Matter

Shruti Srivastva
The average distance between the positions of equillibrium of the atoms of a solid increaces with an increase in temperature which results in the thermal expansion of a solid.

Question 69. Asked on :30 September 2020:05:55:32 PM

#### A body at higher temperature contains moer heat, comment.

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermal Properties Of Matter

Shruti Srivastva
The statement is not always true.The heat content of a body depends upon its mass, specific heat and temperature.

Question 70. Asked on :30 September 2020:05:52:41 PM

#### Why is a constant volume gas thermometer preffered as a standard thermometer than a constant pressure gas thermometer?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermal Properties Of Matter

Shruti Srivastva
This is because the changes in pressure can be measured with greater accuracy than changes in volume.

Question 71. Asked on :30 September 2020:05:50:27 PM

#### Why the temperature above 1200ºC cannot be measured accurately by a platinum resistance thermometer?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermal Properties Of Matter

Shruti Srivastva
This is because platinum begins to evaporation above 1200ºC.

Question 72. Asked on :30 September 2020:05:46:54 PM

#### Mercury boils at 357ºC. How can then a mercury thermometer be used to measure temperature upto 500ºC?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermal Properties Of Matter

Shruti Srivastva
The space above the mercury is filled with nitrogen. This increaces the boling point of mercury and raises the upper limit of the mercury thermometer.

Question 76. Asked on :30 September 2020:05:38:33 PM

#### Why should a thermometer bulb have a small heat capacity?

-Added by Shruti Srivastva Physics » Thermal Properties Of Matter

Shruti Srivastva
Because it absorb less heat from the body whose temperature s to be measured. Hence the temperature of that body will practically unchanged.
