User: what is mercury the element?

Weegy: Mercury will solidify (freeze) at -38.83 ?C (-37.89 ?F) and so may only be used at higher temperatures. Mercury, unlike water, does not expand upon solidification and will not break the glass tube, making it difficult to notice when frozen. [ If the thermometer contains nitrogen the gas may flow down into the column and be trapped there when the temperature rises. If this happens the thermometer will be unusable until returned to the factory for reconditioning. To avoid this some weather services require that all mercury thermometers be brought indoors when the temperature falls to -37 ?C (-34.6 ?F). In areas where the maximum temperature is not expected to rise above -38.83 ?C (-37.89 ?F) a thermometer containing a mercury-thallium alloy may be used. This has a solidification (freezing) point of -61.1 ?C (-78 ?F). ]
