Textbook Problem

The New River Gorge bridge in West Virginia is a 518-m-long steel arch. How much will its length change between temperature extremes of −20.0°C and 35.0°C?

To determine
The change in length.

Explanation

Given Info: Length of steel arch ( L0 ) is 518 m.  The temperature changes from T1=20.0οC to T2=35.0οC   Co-efficient of expansion of steel ( α ) is 11×106/οC

Formula to calculate the change in length is,

ΔL=αL0ΔT       (I)

  • ΔT is the change in temperature.

The change in temperature is,

ΔT=T2T1

Substitute T2T1 for ΔT in Equation (I)
