(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); A liquid has a maximum density of 0.6 g/cm^3 at 3.7 C. At 11.4C , its density is 0.60888 g/cm^3. What is beta for this liquid over this temperature interval? Answer in units of (C)^-1.

Obviously this has to do with the volume expansion so I made the formula deltaV = beta * initial volume * delta temperature into beta = deltaV / (initial volume * delta temperature) assuming that initial volume is 1 cm since its not stated in the problem and thats wrong.

I came out with 0.00115325 doing it that way. System says I am wrong.

Am I on the right track or am I not thinking outside the box enough?
