The characteristic of a material or a body which is taken as an indication of change in temperature is known as
a. Thermodynamics property
b. Thermostatic property
c. Thermometric property
d. None of the above
Correct Answer : c. Thermometric property
Thermal equilibrium is achieved by heat transfer between two bodies which are at different temperature. To obtain a quantitative measure of the temperature of any body, a reference body is used and a particular physical characteristic of that reference body is selected which changes with temperature. The change in the selected characteristic is the indication as change in temperature. This selected characteristic is called as thermometric property, and the reference body is called as thermometer. Mercury is a common example of the thermometer.
