1. How can the sensitivity of a liquid-in-glass thermometer be increased?
2. As water solidifies to ice, its temperature:
3. In very cold weather, ice can form on the surface of puddles of water because the air temperature is below that of the water. If the ice layer is found to be thickening at its lower surface, then most of the transfer of energy must be by:
4. The diagram shows a liquid-in-glass thermometer.

liquid in glass thermometer lengthAt $0^{\circ}\text{C}$, the length of the liquid column is 2.0 cm. At $100^{\circ}\text{C}$, the length of the liquid column is 22.0 cm.

What is the length of the liquid column at $40^{\circ}\text{C}$?
