A. 13 = 4 l2 + l1

B. l3 = 4 l2

C. l3 = 4 l2 - 3 l1

D. I3 = 4 x ( l2 - l1 )

the ans is C. I'd like to know the reasons behind...

    l3 = 4 l2 - 3 l1



    l3 is four times larger than l2

    thus, l3=4 l2

    and, since it is an unmarked thermometer, we need to minus the temperature of melting ice to have an accurate distance. It's because melting ice in different air pressure and room temperature has different degree.

    l1=melting ice

    thus, l3=4 l2 - 3l1
