Homework Help: Physics

Posted by Amy on Friday, April 20, 2012 at 2:49pm.

Steel railroad tracks of length L = 18.30 m are laid at 10.0 C. How much space should be left between the track sections if they are to just touch when the temperature is T = 49.0 C? mm

Please help. I have tried this
L α Δt = 18.3 * 13 10^-6 * (49 -10) = .92781cm which equals to 9.2681 mm I think but its wrong. please help.
