Q:

What are thermometric properties?

A:

Quick Answer

Thermometric properties are properties of a material that vary with the temperature of it. Some examples of thermometric properties include the volume of a liquid, length of a solid, gas pressure, electrical resistance and electromotive force.

Full Answer

With increasing temperatures, most liquids increase in volume. An example of this would be the changing of volume of a liquid in a glass thermometer. The length of a solid, such as a metal rod, increases if the temperature increases. A constant volume of gas increases in pressure as temperature increases. Electrical resistance, such as the resistance of a platinum resistor, also changes with temperature.

    What are the properties of silver?

    A:

    Silver's properties include that its thermal and electrical conductivity are higher than any other metal. The only reason it isn't more widespread in electrical systems is that it is too expensive compared to copper and tarnishes more quickly than gold. However, it is used in high frequency radio engineering, and some stereo-system owners believe silver wire produces better sound quality.
