# A hollow aluminum cylinder 20.0 cm deep has an internal capacity of 2.000 L at 20.0°C. It is completely filled with turpentine at 20.0°C. The turpentine and the aluminum cylinder are then slowly warmed together to 80.0°C. (a) How much turpentine overflows? (b) What is the volume of the turpentine remaining in the cylinder at 80.0°C? (c) If the combination with this amount of turpentine is then cooled back to 20.0°C, how far below the cylinder’s rim does the turpentine’s surface recede?

(a)

To determine
The volume of turpentine that has overflowed.

Explanation

Given Info: The length of the hollow cylinder (l) is 20.0 cm. The capacity of the cylinder ( V0 ) is 2.000 L at T1=20.0Î¿C . The temperature is changed to T2=80.0Î¿C . The co-efficient of volume expansion of turpentine is Î²T=9.0Ã—10âˆ’4/Î¿C . The co-efficient of volume expansion of aluminum is Î²Al=72Ã—10âˆ’6/Î¿C .

Formula to calculate the volume of turpentine that has overflowed is,

Vof=Î”VTâˆ’Î”VAl Â Â Â Â Â  (I)

• Î”VT is the change in volume of turpentine.
• Î”VAl is the change in volume of Aluminum.

Formula to calculate the change in volume of turpentine is,

Î”VT=V0Î²T(T2âˆ’T1) Â Â Â Â Â  (II)

Formula to calculate the change in volume of aluminum is,

Î”VAl=V0Î²Al(T2âˆ’T1) Â Â Â Â Â  (III)

Substitute Equations (II) and (III) in (I).

Vof=V0(T2âˆ’T1)(Î²Tâˆ’Î²Al)

Substitute 2

(b)

To determine
The volume of turpentine remaining.

(c)

To determine
The distance between the rim and the surface of turpentine (h).
