Answer to Question #72012 in Molecular Physics | Thermodynamics for jojo
The length of Lead piping in the plant is 50 m long at a temperature of 160C. When hot water flows
through it the temperature of the pipe rises to 800C. The coefficient of linear expansion of lead is
29 10-6 0 K-1
i) Determine the change in length of the hot pipe.
ii) Determine the compressive force induced in the pipe if it is rigidly held and expansion is
