Textbook Problem

An automobile radiator is filled to the brim with water when the engine is cool. What happens to the water when the engine is running and the water has been raised to a high temperature?

To determine
The effect of increasing the temperature of water in the automobile radiator.

Explanation of Solution

From the Charles’s law, at constant pressure,


  • T is the temperature.
  • V is the volume.

The temperature is directly proportional to the volume
