Are the engine temperature and oil pressure gauges linked?

As the temperature goes up the oil pressure goes down because the oil thins out. It is possible that the increasing temperature which causes the 'temp' light to come on can thin the oil enough to cause the 'oil' light to come on also.

It is linked because if you have high atmospheric pressure it brings blue sunny skies. If you have low atmospheric pressure it bring clouds and rain.

See the Related Question linked the the left of this answer: = How do you solve an Ideal Gas Law problem? = Note that STP is standard temperature and pressure. Standard pressure is 1 atm, and standard temperature is 0 °C, which is 273.15 Kelvin.

The cross linked braids of wire / fibre in a pipe are to reinforce the basic structure. These are mostly for pipes being used in high pressure or temperature use , where the pipes are flexible but need the reinforcement to hold together. The high pressure will tend to expand the pipe so the braids hold it together to sustain this impact of pressure + temperature.
