Question #37955
A container can be made from steel [&beta; = 36 &times; 10-6 (C&deg;)-1] or lead [&beta; = 87 &times; 10-6 (C&deg;)-1]. A liquid is poured into the container, filling it to the brim. The liquid is either water [&beta; = 207 &times; 10-6 (C&deg;)-1] or ethyl alcohol [&beta; = 1120 &times; 10-6 (C&deg;)-1]. When the full container is heated, some liquid spills out. To keep the overflow to a minimum, from what should the container be made and what should the liquid be?

Liquid with less meaning &beta; will expand less. That&rsquo;s why you should take water. A steel container will increase it&rsquo;s volume but it&rsquo;s capacity will decrease. So, it&rsquo;s better to take a steel container.
