A clock driven by a brass rod pendulum loses time; find the error in one day.

See attached file. 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

An aluminum and an iron bar are of unequal length; temperature at equal length.

An aluminum and an iron bar are of unequal length. An iron bar whose length is 60.00 meters is at 0 degrees Celsius. An aluminum bar whose length is 60.05 meters is at +10 degrees Celsius. Find a temperature at which they are the same length. The coefficient of expansion of iron is 11 E -6 per C degree. The coefficient of ex

Calculating the final temperature of a substance undergoing a heat loss.

Commercial cold-packs consist of solid ammonium nitrate and water. Ammonium nitrate absorbs 330 J of heat per gram dissolved in water. In a coffee-cup calorimeter, 2.00 g of ammonium nitrate are dissolved in 75.0 g of water at 30 degrees Celsius. Assuming that all of the heat is lost from the water, what is the final temperatu
