whenever something is heated it expands & when cooled it contracts..so this case can be considered as the case of cooling..use equation \[change \in length=- \alpha \Delta T L\] where L is original length ,\[\Delta T\] is change in temperature..and \[\alpha \] is coefficient of thermal expansion of steel.. when u have found the change in length the %ge error will be given as (change in length/original length)*100 can u do the calculations?

hey i hav to find percentage error intape.
anonymous
  • anonymous
it will be change in length/original length*100
anonymous
  • anonymous
bt length is nt mention only temp. is mention
anonymous
  • anonymous
L in this formula will be cancelled as it is in both numerator and denominator..

change in length

orignal lenth is calibrated length and change is occur when measured at -15c

Yes. Where do you have trouble understanding?

i'm nt geting the percentage error

All materials' length changes with temperature. Change in length is given as \[\Delta L=\alpha \Delta T L\] Here \(\Delta T\) is the change in temp. \(\alpha\) is the linear coefficient of thermal expansion. Do you get this formula?

yes,after put result answer is nt coming

Let's find the change in length \(\alpha \) for steel= \(10.8\times 10^{-6} / C\) C= degree centigrade What's \(\Delta T\) here?
anonymous
  • anonymous
35
ash2326
  • ash2326
it's -35. The length will decrease \[\Delta T=(-15)-(20)=-35\]
ash2326
  • ash2326
\[\text{now find}\ \Delta L \ \text{in terms of L} \]

Does you question mentions the value of alpha?
anonymous
  • anonymous
no ur answer that u get
ash2326
  • ash2326
It's because of the value of alpha. For steel it varies between \(11-13 *10^{(-6)} /C\) Use \(12\times 10^{-6} /C\) and you'd get the answer

i think that if we use difference in reading we get the answer.in place of length
