Many automobile engines have cast-iron cylinders and aluminum pistons. What kinds of problems could occur if the engine gets too hot? (The coefficient of volume expansion of cast iron is approximately the same as that of steel.)
Solution 3DQ Step 1: Automobile engines have aluminium piston and cast iron cylinders. The coefficient of volume expansion of aluminium is 7.2x 10 5 K 1 and cast iron is similar that of steel which is 3.6x 10 5K 1.
