Full Answer

With increasing temperatures, most liquids increase in volume. An example of this would be the changing of volume of a liquid in a glass thermometer. The length of a solid, such as a metal rod, increases if the temperature increases. A constant volume of gas increases in pressure as temperature increases. Electrical resistance, such as the resistance of a platinum resistor, also changes with temperature.
