On a hot day (300C) an oil trucker loaded with 50 000L of gasoline into his truck. By the time he got to his destination the temperature has dropped to -50C. How many litres of fuel did he deliver? The coefficient of volume expansion of gasoline is 9.5 X10-4 /0C. The coefficient of linear expansion for his steel tank is 11X10-6/0C. The tank is a cylinder 10m long with a radius of 2m



V=V0(1+3alpha [tex]\Delta[/tex]T
[tex]\Delta[/tex]V/V0=[tex]\beta[/tex][tex]\Delta[/tex]T




i figured out the volume of the cylinder is 40pi m3 but i dont know where to go from there.
