One Line Answer
Equal volumes of alcohol and mercury are heated uniformly in identical containers separately from 10°C to 50°C. Will both the liquids occupy the same volume? Give reason.
No, both liquids i.e. mercury and alcohol will not have the same volume on heating as they have a different coefficients of expansions, thus they expand differently on heating at the same temperature range. Alcohol expands more than mercury.
Concept: Expansion of Substances (Thermal Expansion) - Expansion of Solids
