Rod| Initial length| Change in Length| Coefficient of Linear Expansion(Exp)| Coefficient of Linear Expansion(Theo)| % Error| Steel| 40| .035| 1.17 x 10 / C| 1.1 x 10^-5/ C| 6.36%| Copper| 40| .055| 1.8 x 10 ^-5 /C| 1.7 x 10^-5 /C| 5.88%|

Computation :


1. A bemetalli c strip is made by joining two materials with different coefficients of thermal expansion. If given figure belo aA >aB, will the strip curl upsward or downward.

2. An aluminum rod at 18 C has a length od 2.5 meters. At what possible temperatures will its length change by 1 cm?

3. One hot summerday a square lot was measured using a steel tape. The same lot was measured by the same steel tape on one wintry day. Will the measurement vary?

4. Two rods have the ff. Properties at 18 C
At what temp. will 2 rod equal in length

5. Given 2 brass rods, one 1 m and the other 1 cm at 4 C. At what temp. will the rods double their lengths. Will it be a common temp.?

1. Aglass window pane has an area of 5 sq. meters and a thickness of 1 cm. If the temperature diff. between its faces is 30 C, what is the rate of heat transfer by conduction through the window?

2. A steel rod has one end at 105 C anf the other at 32 C . The length of the bar is 200 cm and has a cross sectional area of 5 sq cm a) What is the rate at which heat is transferred along the rod? b) If two rods were connected in series, woth the same temperature at the ends, what would be the rate of heat transfer? c) If two rods were connected in parallel, same temperature at the ends, what would be the rate of heat transfer?

3. One end of the an insulated metal rod is maintained at 100 C and the other end at 0 C by an ice water mixture. The rod is 100 cm long and has a cross sectional area of 1.5 sq .cm, the heat conducted by the rod melts 9 gm of ice in 15 min. Find the thermal conductivity of the metal?
