1. You pour 108 cm3 of ethanol, at a temperature of - 10.0 C, into a graduated cylinder initially at 20.0 C, filling it to the very top. The cylinder is made of glass with a specific heat of 840 J/kgK and a coefficient of volume expansion of 1.2 × 10-5 K-1; its mass is 0.110 kg. The mass of the ethanol is 0.0873 kg. The specific heat capacity of ethanol is 2428 J/kgK and the coefficient of volume expansion of ethanol is 75 × 10-5 K-1.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

V_loss=V_fe-V_fg

=7.677*〖10〗^(-7) m^3

=7.7cm^3

This seems like a very small loss, does anyone know if it correct or not?
