8.1 Measuring Temperature

This section covers the following syllabus (Physics 5059) requirements.

  • explain how a physical property which varies with temperature, such as volume of liquid column, resistance of metal wire and electromotive force (e.m.f.) produced by junctions formed with wires of two different metals, may be used to define temperature scales
