    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    A copper cylinder is initially at 20.0 C

    2. Relevant equations

    At what temperature will its volume be 0.150 % larger than it is at 20.0 C

    3. The attempt at a solution

    [tex]\Delta[/tex]V =[tex]beta[/tex]V[tex]\Delta[/tex]T

    .15=5.1x10^-5(Tf-20)

    Hi amiv4,
    Welcome to PF.
    Δv = 0.150% = 0.15/100 m^3
