Homework Help: A little doubt

  1. Mar 25, 2009 #1
    1. A thermometer is calibrated wrongly. At the melting point, it reads -10 degree celsius. At 50 degree celsius, it reads 60 degree celsius. What does the thermometer read at the boiling point?



    2. I think this is logic-based.



    3. I drew a table but got confused.

    Assume that the relationship between temperature and the reading on the thermometer is linear.
