What is mercury?
Mercury is a metallic element that exists in several alloys. It has a low melting point, so it is often combined with other metals to make coins, tubes, and other objects. It is also in liquid form, so it is used to make silver-colored mirrors and other optical devices.
In the mid-1800s, mercury was used in thermometers, as it was less affected by the environment than other types of thermometers. Today, mercury is no longer used in thermometers, but it is still used in some optical devices.
