I actually have 3 questions to ask on this. If 2 mercury thermometers are identical in every aspect except that one of the thermometer has a larger bulb than the other,(a)which one will give a larger range of temperature?For this, I am totally lost.(b)which one will indicate more quickly a small rise in temperature?Is it the one with a smaller bulb??(c)if the thermometers are replaced with alcohol filled thermometers, will answers in (a) and (b) be the same?I believe it may be the same? I would really like to know the reasons behind these questions.Please enlighten me on these. Hope to hear from you soon. Thank you.Have a nice day.
