Consider a cube of an unknown material. When heated by 10 K, each side expands by 1%. Using *only this information*, what is the ratio between the coefficent of volume expansion and the coefficient of linear expansion (i.e., beta/alpha)? Express your answer to two significant figures.

• Physics -

3.0 is always the ratio.
The temperature rise and linear expansion amount don't matter.
