Question
Consider two thermometers T_{1} and T_{2} of equal length which can be used to measure temperature over the range θ_{1} to θ_{2}. T_{1} contains mercury as the thermometric liquid while T_{2} contains bromine. The volumes of the two liquids are the same at the temperature θ_{1}. The volumetric coefficients of expansion of mercury and bromine are 18 × 10^{–5} K^{–1} and 108 × 10^{–5} K^{–1}, respectively. The increase in length of each liquid is the same for the same increase in temperature. If the diameters of the capillary tubes of the two thermometers are d_{1} and d_{2} respectively, then the ratio d_{1}: d_{2} would be closest to –

Question
YoungLaplace law states that the excess pressure inside a soap bubble of radius R is given by where σ is the coefficient of surface tension of the soap. The Eӧtvӧs number E_{0} is a dimensionless number that is used to describe the shape of bubbles rising through a surrounding fluid. It is a combination of g (the acceleration due to gravity), ρ (the density of the surrounding fluid), σ and a characteristic length scale L which could be the radius of the bubble. A possible expression for E_{0} is –
