A hollow aluminum cylinder 22.0 cm deep has an internal capacity of 2.000 L at 21.0C. It is completely filled with turpentine at 21.0C. The turpentine and the aluminium cylinder are then slowly warmed together to 87.0C. (The average linear expansion coefficient for aluminium is 2.4 10-5C−1, and the average volume expansion coefficient for turpentine is 9.0 10-4C−1.)
(a) How much turpentine overflows?
(b) What is the volume of turpentine remaining in the cylinder at 87.0C? (Give your answer to four significant figures.)
(c) If the combination with this amount of turpentine is then cooled back to 21.0C, how far below the cylinder's rim does the turpentine's surface recede?
