Problem 17PE

(a) If a 500-mL glass beaker is filled to the brim with ethyl alcohol at a temperature of 5.00ºC, how much will overflow when its temperature reaches 22.0ºC ? (b) How much less water would overflow under the same conditions?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 17PE

a.) ethyl alcohol = [ ( 1100 x 10-6/oC) ( 500 mL) (22oC - 5oC)]

= [ ( 1100 x 10-6/oC) ( 500 mL) (17oC)]

= 9.35 mL

The change in volume or amount of overflow is  9.35 mL .

b.) water = water V T

= [ ( 210 x 10-6 /oC) (500 mL) ( 22oC - 5oC)]

= [ ( 210 x 10-6 /oC) (500 mL) ( 17oC)]

= 1.79 mL

The change in volume or amount of overflow is 1.79 mL .

Thus, the lesser quantity of water that would overflow under the same condition is,

9.35 mL - 1.79 mL = 7.56 mL

Hence, 7.56 mL of lesser water would overflow under the same condition.
