1) [187] We assume scale X is a linear scale in the sense that if its reading is
x
then it is related to a reading
y
on the Kelvin scale by a linear relationship
y = mx + b
. We determine the constants
m
and
b
by solving the
simultaneous equations:

b
which yield the solutions
m
= 100/(170 – 53.5) = 0.858 and
b
= 419. With these values, we find
x
for
y
= 340:
2) [1813] Since a volume is the product of three lengths, the change in volume due to a temperature change

is given by

V
is the original volume and
is the coefficient of linear expansion. See
Eq. 1811. Since
V

, where
R
is the original radius of the sphere, then
The value for the coefficient of linear expansion is found in Table 182. The change in volume can be
expressed as
, where
is the coefficient of volume expansion. For aluminum, we have

3) [1817] If
V

Note: Glycerin spills over because
, which gives
. Note that since liquids in general
have greater coefficients of thermal expansion than solids, heating a cup filled with liquid generally will cause
the liquid to spill out.
4) [1823] The mass
m
= 0.100 kg of water, with specific heat
c
= 4190 J/kg·K, is raised from an initial
temperature
T
i
= 23°C to its boiling point
T
f
= 100°C. The heat input is given by
Q
=

(
T
f
– T
i
). This must be
the power output of the heater
P
multiplied by the time
t
;
Q = Pt
. Thus,
5) [1827] The melting point of silver is 1235 K, so the temperature of the silver must first be raised from
15.0° C (= 288 K) to 1235 K. This requires heat
Now the silver at its melting point must be melted. If
L
F
is the heat of fusion for silver, this requires
