1. During an all-night cram session, a student heats up a one-half liter (0.50 10-3 m3) glass (Pyrex) beaker of cold coffee. Initially, the temperature is 20°C, and the beaker is filled to the brim. A short time later when the student returns, the temperature has risen to 92°C. The coefficient of volume expansion of coffee is the same as that of water. How much coffee (in cubic meters) has spilled out of the beaker?

Coefficient of volume expansion for water is 207 x 10^-6

I used the equation

delta V = beta x volume x delta T

= 207x10^-6 X 0.5x10^-3 X 72

= 7.452 X 10 ^-6

But the answer is wrong
