 P: 3 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 $$\Delta$$T $$\Delta$$V/V0=$$\beta$$$$\Delta$$T i figured out the volume of the cylinder is 40pi m3 but i dont know where to go from there.
