Thermal expansion of a copper cylinder

  • #1

Homework Statement



A copper cylinder is initially at 20.0 degrees c At what temperature will its volume be 0.150 % larger than it is at 20.0 degrees c

Homework Equations


delta v = Beta vo (delta T)
dv= beta vo dt


The Attempt at a Solution



ive found an answer of 49.41 degrees c

I belive its from manipulating the second equation to
beta = dv / (vo dt)

does this seem right?
any help here would be great thanks in advance
