_{Homework Statement Onto a thick brass rod we attach equally long glass thread. At what temperature change will the glass thread break if the temperature coefficient of linear expansion for brass is α1= 20 x 10 ^-6 K^-1, and for glass is α2= 7 x 10^-6 K^-1? Young’s (elastic) modulus for glass is E1= 7 x 10^10 N/m², and shear modulus for glass is σ1= 7 x 10^7 N/m². Homework Equations Linear thermal expansion: α(L)= ΔL/ L(0)ΔT Young’s (elastic) modulus: E= FL(0)/ AΔL The Attempt at a Solution And from here I have no clue how to build a relationship between linear thermal expansion and elastic modulus and how to incorporate all the terms given to find the result. Can someone please give me some hint?}

Thank you for helping!
