Posted by Wendi on Wednesday, December 8, 2010 at 6:55pm.

When railroad tracks are installed, gaps are left between the rails. Each steel rail is 8.0m long and has a cross-sectional area of 0.0020m^2. On a hot day, each rail thermally expands as much as 4.0mm. If there were no gaps between the rails, what would be the force on the ends of each rail?
[Y=20x10^10 N/m^2]
