  4. a
  5. (a) – (ii), (b) – (iii), (c) – (v), (d) – (i), (e) – (iv).
    1. bad
    2. Mercury
    3. Temperature
    4. conduction
    5. good.
  6. Convection is the transfer of heat by the movement of molecules of liquids and gases. On heating, liquids and gases become lighter and rise up. The cooler, heavier fluids move down and take the place of warmer fluids.
    1. Expansion of mercury is uniform over a wide range of temperature.
    2. Can be seen from outside glass.
    3. Does not stick to the glass.
  7. Heat is a form of energy. On the other hand, temperature is the degree of hotness and coldness of a substance. Temperature can be changed by changing providing heat energy to the body.
  8. ConductorInsulator
    Woolen clothWater
  9. Similarities:
    1. Both clinical and laboratory thermometers have long, narrow, uniform glass tubes.
    2. The bulbs of both the thermometers have mercury in them.
    1. The temperature range of clinical thermometers is from 35°C to 42°C while that of laboratory thermometer is from −10°C to 110°C.
    2. Clinical thermometer is used to measure the temperature of a human body.
      However, laboratory thermometer cannot be used to measure the temperature of a human body.
    3. The least count of both the thermometers differs.
    4. Unlike clinical thermometer that can be tilted, laboratory thermometer is kept upright while reading the temperature values.
