Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3whenever 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2All 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?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Let's find the change in length \(\alpha \) for steel= \(10.8\times 10^{6} / C\) C= degree centigrade What's \(\Delta T\) here?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2it's 35. The length will decrease \[\Delta T=(15)(20)=35\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Does you question mentions the value of alpha?

ash2326

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It's because of the value of alpha. For steel it varies between \(1113 *10^{(6)} /C\) Use \(12\times 10^{6} /C\) and you'd get the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i think that if we use difference in reading we get the answer.in place of length
