Suppose a mercury thermometer is in contact with a hot body hotter than it. Hot BOdy -- T K Mercury thermometer - tk such that T>t Now when thermal equilibrium would be attained the temperature would not be the same as the earlier one i.e. T It would chage to T3 K so how can a mercury thermometer measure the right temperature of the hot body?
