A steel rod of length 1 m is welded to the end of an aluminum rod of length 2 m (lengths measured at 23 °C). The combination rod is then heated to 198 °C. What is the length of the combination rod at 198 °C? (The linear expansion coefficients for steel and aluminum are 1.3 10-5 °C−1 and 2.2 10-5 °C−1, respectively. Enter your answer to three significant figures.)

5. ### physics

If a rod is moving at a velocity equal to 1/2 the speed of light parallel to its length, what will a stationary observer observe about its length?
6. ### Physics

The length of the rod will become exactly half of its original value. The length of the rod remains the same. The length of the rod will decrease. The length of the rod will increase. Wouldn't the length double, thus being answer D?
