Because of its high coefficient of expansion, the mercury expands when heated for the slightest increase in temperature and contracts for the slightest decrease in temperature. The increase or decrease in mercury level corresponding to the temperature rise or fall is marked alongside the glass tube.

    A pyrometer is a type of device used for measurement of relatively higher temperature as compared to a thermometer. In cases of higher temperature viz...
