Answer :

200°C

Explanation:


Given,


Pressure at ice point, Pice , is 80 cm of Hg


Pressure at steam point, Psteam, is 90cm of Hg


Pressure of wax bath, P, is 100cm of Hg


Formula used


We have the relation between Pressure and temperature of a constant volume gas thermometer as



This can be written as



Where,


Pice =Pressure at ice point=80cm of Hg


Psteam= Pressure at steam point = 90cm of Hg,


P=Pressure of wax bath=100cm of Hg,


Tice=Ice point temperature= 0°C,


Tsteam= Steam point temperature=100°C


T=?


Putting the given values in the above equation results,



(Ans.)


The temperature of the wax bath is 200° C
