Best Answer

an example would be a thermometer. A thermometer because it has Mercury in it. When you check a patients temperature with a thermometer ,the heat from the patients body will cause the expansion of the mercury and the mercury flows in the tube. It stops at a point and that point indicates the temperature in the patients body.
