The specific volume of water is given quite accurately by the empirical relation

ln(v) = −6.7081 + 1.01257 ln(T) +

280.663/T

Use this relation to derive an equation for the coefficient of thermal expansion and determine

the temperature at which this quantity is equal to zero. What is the significance of

this temperature?
