A clock driven by a brass rod pendulum loses time when the rod expands as the temperature rises. Find the error in one day.

A pendulum clock is driven by a brass rod of length Lo= 1.6 meters, pivoted at one end.

The pendulum beats perfect time when the temperature is to= 21 degrees Celsius.

If the temperature is increased and held at tf= 26 degrees Celsius, find how many seconds error will be introduced in one 24 hour day.

The coefficient of expansion for brass is B= .000019 per Celsius degree.
(In finding periods, express them to four decimal places.)
