為何此句用WHERE.....

He invented a thermometer WHERE(?) water's boiling point was 0 degrees and its freezing point 100 degrees.

為何這裡是用where呢

可以的話麻煩將此句分解成兩句 謝謝

    "where", here, means "in which". Don't always think "where" can only be associated with places or locations.

    He invented a thermometer WHERE water's boiling point was 0 degrees and its freezing point 100 degrees.

    =He invented a thermometer IN WHICH water's boiling point was 0 degrees and its freezing point 100 degrees.

    = He invented a thermometer. In this thermometer, water's boilng point was 0 degrees and its freezing point 100 degrees.
