calculate the change of volume from volume expansion coefficient
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 do you think? A delta of 50 degrees is pretty significant.
What is the initial volume?
