The liquid expand from heat. We use these expansion to indicate temperature. Common thermometer liquid is Mercury and alcohol.
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.
The liquid expands and since the only place for it to go is up it starts to fill the tube
it gets hotter
When the liquid in the thermometer gets warmer it expands.
a liquid thermometer is made with a glass "shell" and ussually have murcur inside them that dilates when it gets hotter and rises and contracts when its colder and lowers- this has been made by a 12 year old boy
It gets hotter

MOST matter expands as it gets hotter.
The liquid expands when it gets warmer.
OK basically depending on what thermometer. the glass tube is filled with either alcohol or Mercury. and when it gets hotter, the liquid expands and takes up more space inside the tube. and colder.......the liquid compacts and moves down the tube.....and it's taken years to calabrate the markings on the tube to show the correct reading.
liquid expands as it gets warmer
if you put water in a thermometer and it gets hot the water expands and might and burst and when it gets to cold it freezes
The only way that the mass can change is if matter is added or taken away. The volume of a liquid can increase if heated, such as the liquid inside of a thermometer. The thermometer is sealed and no liquid gets in or out, so the mass of the liquid is unchanged. But when the temperature goes up, the liquid expands and is forced to go up the thermometer.
The liquid in the thermometer's bulb gets heated and, as it does, it expands into the stem.
Usually when a thing gets hot, it expands. The liquid in the thermometer gets hot, and expands, so it takes up more room in the tube.
Mercury, like most substances, expands when it gets hotter and contracts when it gets colder. A mercury thermometer is designed so that the volume of the mercury can be accurately observed, as the mercury rises or falls in a marked column.
The gaps allow the steal to expand as the day gets hotter, and prevent the steal from buckling.
No. Most materials expand when they get hotter. A notable exception is water between 0 and 4 degrees centigrade.No. Most materials expand when they get hotter.

Because it is just a standardised and easy way of making thermometers. You could use any substance, the pricible is the same: A substance will expand the hotter it gets. Mercury just expands a lot more than most elements and so is easier to make a thermometer.
When the liquid in the thermometer gets warmer it expands. This means its volume increases. The only place for the extra volume to go is up the tube, so the level of liquid rises. When the liquid gets colder it contracts (reduces in volume) so it moves back down the tube. See http://www.energyquest.ca.gov/how_it_works/thermometer.html
They usually expand and when the temperature gets high enough, turns to liquid.
plastic does heat up because the particles in the plastic bag gets hotter the particles expand and turn warm
Well... It gets really hot becuase of the sunlight or energy it gets. The more its been there it gets hotter and hotter.
No. The asthenosphere is hotter. The deeper you go, the hotter it gets.
