    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    1. A spherical glass bulb is filled with 50 mL of water at 5 C. The bulb has a neck of radius 0.15 cm that is initially empty. How high does the water rise in the neck at 35 C? Include the effect of the expansion of the glass bulb. βwater = 2.1 x 10-4 K-1
    2. Relevant equations
    ΔV = 3αVT

    3. The attempt at a solution
    Not really know where to begin with
