An aluminum rod is 21.5 cm long at 20°C and has a mass of 350 g. If 12500 J of energy is added to the rod by heat, what is the change in length of the rod?

  1. first find the change in temp

    heat=mass*specificHeat*deltaTemp

    look up specificheat for al, compute delta temp

    then, go to linear expansion.
    deltaLength= Length*coefflinearexpansion*deltaTemp
    look up the linear expansion coeff, compute change in length.
