Question

A member is made of the following materials: steel, brass and copper, the constants are listed below:
STEEL:
length: 300mm
coeff. of thermal expansion: 12(10^-6)/degree C
area: 200mm^2
E= 200 GPa

BRASS:
L= 200mm
A= 450mm^2
Coeff of thermal expansion: 21(10^-6)/degree C
E= 100 GPa

COPPER:
L= 100mm
A= 515mm^2
Coeff. of thermal expansion: 17(10^-6)/degree C
E= 120 GPa
Rigid supports are located at each end of the member. What is the force exerted on the supports if the temperature increases by 6 degrees C?
