What are the function of Bimetallic thermometer?

A bimetallic thermometer has a coil of metal strips in it. The metal strips are made of two different materials that expand/contract at different rates. Because they're connected together at one end, when the metals warm up or cool down, the coil changes shape. You use a bimetallic thermometer when you want an electrical circuit to close due to a change of temperature.

What is a bimetallic thermometer?

A bimetallic thermometer uses a bimetallic strip wrapped into a coil. This strip usually consists of either steel and copper or steel and brass. A bimetallic thermometer is a type of thermometer made with a couple metal strips. They have differing thermal expansions that are brazen together. Any distortion in this apparatus caused by variations in the temperature is used to measure the temperature.

What is bi-metallic strip thermometer?

It's basically a coil of wire - anchored at one end - with a pointer attached at the other. The coil is actually a 'sandwich' of two different metals which react at different rates when exposed to heat. As the coil heats up, one metal expands faster than the other - causing the coil to unwind - which moves the pointer around a dial marked with a scale.
