Lab D: Linear Expansion Coefficient Physics 103A Name: Brian Gonzalez Partner: Rueben Eliabachus, Julie Monaco Date: 10/9/2017 Professor: Alexander Clark Introduction: The objective of this lab is to measure the coefficient of linear expansion for 3 different metal rods. Linear dimensions for most substances increase when the temp increases in a range that doesn’t produce phase change. The added heat causes an increase in vibrational kinetic energy. The increase in linear dimension is proportional to the increase in temperature and the initial linear dimension. Experimental Procedure: Step 1: Measure the initial length of the rod Step 2: Insert the rod into the heating jacket, pointed against the adjustable screw and flat end against the dial gauge. Step 3: Record the initial temperature. Step 4: Record the initial dial gauge reading. Step 5: Turn on the steam generator and let the steam into the heating jacket until the rod has steady temperature. Record the steady temperature as the final temperature. Step 6: While the temperature is steady note the final reading (Xf) on the dial gauge.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
