### Why is it more difficult to measure temperature of a solid than a liquid?

You can insert a thermometer directly into a liquid, but not into a solid. You can fairly easily measure the surface temperature of a solid object, but that does not necessarily reflect the temperature inside.

### Why is it More difficult to measure the temperature of a solid than a liquid?

### What is surface tention?

surface tension is the property of a liquid which make its surface behave as if it is a length or stretch elastic skin.

### What is surface tensiona measure of?

The surface tension caused over a liquid is cased by the molecular bonds of the liquid.

### How could you determine the volume of a solid that has a surface too highly irregular to measure?

Immerse it in a liquid, and measure how much the level of the liquid rises.

### What two forces create the meniscus you see at the top of a liquid when you measure it?

the liquid's own surface tension and weight

Kilograms.

### A micron gauge is used to measure WHAT?

the thickness of wet paint (liquid) on a solid surface.

### What is the curve on a liquid surface called?

The curve is referred to as the meniscus.

### How do you determine the volume of an irregularly shaped object that floats?

You can push it under water / under the liquid's surface, and measure the displacement of liquid.

### What tool would I use to measure liquid during an experiment?

Liquid is often measured in a tall glass cylinder that has a graduated scale etched on its surface.
