1. What is the symbolic representation for the coefficient of thermal linear expansion and its unit? symbol = __________________ unit:__________________

2. A 10.0 cm french-fry temperature changes by 37oC. If the final length of the fry is 50.03 cm, calculate the coefficient of thermal linear expansion of the fry.

3. Why are gaps or spaces placed between cement sidewalks, instead of laying them so that each side touch?

4. What is the coefficient of thermal linear expansion for the following materials: aluminum = Al =________________ brass = br = ____________________ steel = st = _________________

Roster#_______________

______________________________________________________

OBJECTIVE: The purpose of this lab is to measure the coefficient of thermal linear

expansion for a selection of metals and compare the results to the theoretical values.

APPARATUS:

Coefficient of linear expansion apparatus Boiler and plastic tubing Centigrade thermometer Meter stick Two metal rods Paper towels and pot holders Cup to catch run off

cylindrical cross-section where the length is by far the largest dimension will expand according to the law; L = LoT equation 1. where; L is the change in length, L0 is the initial length, is the coefficient of linear thermal expansion for various materials, T is the change in temperature. The theoretical value for the coefficient of linear expansion for various substances is given in your textbook.

PROCEDURE:

1. Using the hot plate, heat the water to boiling. While the water is being heated work on the rest of the procedures.

2. Using a meter stick, measure the initial length of the steel rod at room temperature. Avoid excessive handling of the rod because your body will transfer heat into the rod, causing it to expand. Record the initial length in centimeters. 3. Record the room temperature on your data sheet, this is the initial temperature of the rod. 4. Assemble the apparatus. Insert the rod into the metal jacket. Hold the rod by its ends to avoid heating it. Align the dial pin with the metal rod. Do not attach the plastic tubing from the boiler yet. 5. Record the initial reading of the gauge. The gauge reads in inches and each division on the gauge is 0.001 inch. 6. Insert the thermometer into the hole in the center of the metal jacket. Attach the hose from the boiler to the metal jacket. Allow steam to pass through the apparatus until the internal temperature stabilizes to about 100 oC, due to energy loses you probably will not be able to get to 100 degrees. Allow steam to pass through the system for five minutes and observe the expansion of the rod on the gauge by checking the reading every two minutes. Observe and record the final gauge reading. The change in length of the rod is the difference between the final gauge reading and the initial gauge reading. Be sure to convert your units from inches to centimeters.

7. Using a potholder (insulated glove), remove the plastic tubing and tilt the apparatus to drain the hot water. Be very careful, steam DOES burn skin!! The whole apparatus is HOT!! Cool the steam shield in the sink to prepare for the next measurement. 8. For the second measurement repeat the previous steps using the brass, copper or steel rod.

CALCULATIONS/ANALYSIS:

1. Use equation 1 to determine the coefficient of linear expansion for each of the (2) rods that were used during the experiment.

2. Compute the percent error between your experimental value and the theoretical value of the coefficient of linear expansion found in the textbook using the following equation: % error =

QUESTIONS:

1. What is the relationship between the coefficient of thermal linear expansion and the change in length?

2. According the coefficient of thermal linear expansion, which of the two rods used in the experiment would you expect to have the greatest expansion, if all other things are equal? Did your experimental results verify your theory?

3. What role does the temperature range in a certain area of the country and the coefficient of thermal linear expansion play in selecting materials used in construction of bridges, houses, etc?

4. A 5.0 m rod is heated from 23oC to 35oC in which the length of the rod change by 7.2 x 10-4 m, what is the rod made of? Hint: determine its coefficient of thermal linear expansion.
