Problem 12PE

Problem 12PE

How large an expansion gap should be left between steel railroad rails if they may reach a maximum temperature 35.0ºC greater than when they were laid? Their original length is 10.0 m.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 12PE

L = [(12 x 10-6 / oC) (10.0 m) (35.0oC)]

      = 4.20 x 10-3 m

The expansion gap should be 4.20 x 10-3 m
