Question

Each of the following statements is arguably true of thermometers. Which of them is most helpful to keep in mind if you are conducting an experiment to measure the specific heat of a material? Group of answer choices It may take a few minutes for a thermometer to come into equilibrium with its surroundings. The temperature reported by a thermometer is never precisely the same as its surroundings. A thermometer can only report information about its own temperature. By definition, the temperature of the surrounding environment is exactly what the thermometer reports.

    Answer:

    The temperature reported by a thermometer is never precisely the same as its surroundings

    Explanation:

    In this experiment to determine the specific heat of a material the theory explains that when a heat interchange takes place between two bodies that were having different temperatures at the start, the quantity of heat the warmer body looses is equal to that gained by the cooler body to reach the equilibrium temperature. This is true only if no heat is lost or gained from the surrounding. If heat is gained or lost from the surrounding environment, the temperature readings by the thermometer will be incorrect. The experimenter should therefore keep in mind that for accurate results, the temperature recorded by the thermometer is similar to that of the surrounding at the start of the experiment and if it differs then note that there is either heat gained or lost to the environment.
