Yeah pretty obscure. Measures the negative expansion co-efficient of water at low temperatures.

I - current (stands for the intensity of the electric current)

Yes the warmer water is denser and so the colder, less dense ice floats on the top.

j - the square root of minus one as used in the imaginary number theory method of alternating current analysis. Usually this symbol is i but this clashes with the symbol for current.

Mercury - The only metal that's liquid at room temperature (well that's more chemistry) OR the planet named after the Roman god of something (Classics was never my strongest point) but its still a planet
