Alcohol thermometer is better than the mercury thermometer because
Being lighter than mercury, the errors due to internal pressure are much smaller.
Alcohol requires much less heat to raise its temperature through 1oC.
Expansion of alcohol being smooth and regular leads to accuracy in temperature measurenment.
All of the above
Gas is superior to liquids in application to thermometry because
Expansion of gases (about 20 times) is far greater than liquids (including mercury)
Expansion of gases is regular both at low and high temperatures.
Due to much lower thermal capacity gases are far more sensitive to small changes of temperature.
All of the above
For a perfect monoatomic gas, the value of chemical constant (i) is given by (where, M = Molecular weight of substance)
I= 1.5 log10 M-1.59
I= 1.5 log10 M-5
I= 1.5 log10 M-1.59
I= 1.5 log10 M
There is no degree of freedom or the system is invariant when the phase of the system co-exist.
None of the above
The path covered by a molecule between any two consecutive collisions is a straight line, and is called the
Mean free path
Free path
Straight path
Both (a) and (b)
