One cool 5.0 degree C spring morning, Mason lays a brick sidewalk up to his house, placing the 25 cm long bricks end to end against eachother. However, Mason forgets to leave a space for expansion and when the temperature reaches 36 degree C, the bricks buckle. How high will the bricks rise?
coefficient of expansion of brick=
10x10^-6/C^1
