It is a thermometer, and is used to show the temperature.


It is called a thermometer - used to measure temperature. The liquid in the bulb expands more than the glass when the temperature rises, so the length of the column of liquid in the tube increases with temperature.


If the last word was meant to be "alcohol", then the answer is a thermometer.


The bulb thermometer is made of thin glass so as to detect the slightest change in temperature. It is made of thin glass for visibility as well.


The glass bulb of a light bulb is known as the globe. It is made from a thin layer of glass to ensure light efficiency and still support the rest of the bulb.



This could describe a thermometer. The only thing missing is the graduations. That way the height of the column can be associated with a specific temperature, the one that caused the column to be as high as it is.


For Light to emit properly with out any incident of light happening the glass is kept thin and clear


http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Why_is_the_glass_on_the_bulb_of_a_clinical_thermometer_so_thin


The glass around the bulb in a clinical thermometer (the conventional one) is thin because glass is not a good conductor of heat. The clinician and the patient don't want to wait half an hour to get a good temperature reading. By using the thinner glass, the transfer of heat into the thermometer's fluid will be more rapid than it would with an instrument with thicker glass.

A Thermometer. It is used to sense temperature changes.As the liquid expands and contracts with heating or cooling, when set on a calibrated scale, you can get a pretty exact reading on the amount of the changes.


because it helps give off as much light as possible, while thicker glass would hamper the flow of light.


The liquid contained within he thermometer's tube expands with heat, or contracts with cold. This is shown by the length of liquid in the tubing.


A coverslip is a thin glass placed on the microscope slide.


The glass is so thin so it can tell the tempature. If the glass were thicker, the thermomiter would be wrong.



It is the extremely thin wire inside the bulb. It is so thin that when the electricity goes through produce light, when that filament breaks the bulb is not good.


A light bulb is a source of electric light. In an incandescent light bulb, the glass bulb forms a protective shield around a glowing filament. The air inside the glass bulb is removed, or replaced with an inert gas. Electric current is passed through a thin metal filament (usually tungsten), which causes it to glow white hot, giving out light. The protective bulb stops the filament from burning up, as it has no Oxygen.



that depends what is the liquid.


A psychrometer is a simple form of hygrometer, an instrument which measures relative humidity. The psychrometer compares the dry-bulb and wet-bulb air temperatures.The "whirling psychrometer" is an instrument for the measurement of the temperature and humidity of the air. It contains two mercury-in-glass thermometers with a scale of minus 5 to plus 50 degrees Celsius, in 0.5 degree increments. One is an ordinary dry bulb thermometer and the other wet bulb thermometer whose bulb is surrounded by a piece of thin muslin, kept moist with distilled water.


Oil is a liquid that can be thick or thin.


When you pour a really hot or really cold liquid into a glass, the sudden expansion or contraction will cause it to break. This is especially true with thicker glass because the temperature of the surface of the glass will differ from the temperature of the inside of the glass, making it more likely to crack. This difference in temperature doesn't affect thinner glass because the outer and inner temperatures are going to be more similar.
