What is the change in length of a 3.00-cm-long column of mercury if its temperature changes from 37.0ºC to 40.0ºC , assuming the mercury is unconstrained?
Step 1 of 3
L = [(60x10-6/oC) (3.00 m) () (40oC-37oC)]
= [(60x10-6 / oC ) (0.030 m) (3oC)]
= 5.4 x 10-6 m
The change in length of a column of mercury with change in temperature is
5.4 x 10-6 m .
