Ensuring a Tight Fit. ?Aluminum rivets used in airplane construction are made slightly larger than the rivet holes and cooled by “dry ice” (solid CO2) before being driven. If the diameter of a hole is 4.500 mm, what should be the diameter of a rivet at 23.0°C if its diameter is to equal that of the hole when the rivet is cooled to-78.0°C the temperature of dry ice? Assume that the expansion coefficient remains constant at the value given in Table 17.1

Solution 14E The final length after contraction due to temperature change is given by L = L(1 T) Where L is the initial length, is the expansion coefficient and T is the change in temperature. In this problem we have L = 4.500 mm T = (23°C ( 78°C))...
