calculate the change of volume from volume expansion coefficient
β= (1/v)(∂v/∂T)constant pressure.
What is the v represent? molar volume? If I am given the β and the change of temperature, how to calculate the change of volume? or it is not enough information to calculate it? Thank you. 
Re: calculate the change of volume from volume expansion coefficient
it seems like you have enough if the change is relatively small so that you could use deltas:
beta * delta T * V =delta V You'd have to decide on what relatively small means and you have to know what V is.

Thank you
Question : a container is filled with mercury at 0 degree Celcius. At temperature 50 degree Celcius , what is the volume of mercury that will spill out ? β Of mercury is 18*10^(5) /Celcius Is this possible to do ?

What is the initial volume?

The initial volume is not given , so that question can't be solved?

[tex]\frac{d\ln{v}}{dt}=\beta[/tex] Integrating, you get: [tex]v=v_0\exp(\beta(T  T_0))[/tex] where v_{0} is the volume at temperature T_{0}.
