Question

A pendulum clock keeps correct time at 0C. Its mean coefficient of linear expansions is α/C, then the loss, in seconds, per day by the clock if the temperature rises by tC is -



A

C

D

Solution

The correct option is B


The gain/loss of time will be (TT) seconds. For example, what the clock was measuring to be 1 second will now be shown as 1(1+12aΔθ) seconds. Which is, to say, a gain of [1(1+12aΔθ)1] seconds, or, 12aΔθseconds, has occurred. Thus, for T seconds,the clock will show a gain of T × 12aΔ θ seconds.

T = T(1+12aΔθ)

T = T + 12aTΔθ

Now, a day has 24 × 60 × 60 seconds = 86,400 seconds.

You might have figured the answer now.

Since, we are taking the measure at a temoerature θfinal = tC, and the clock is known to give a correct reading at θinitial = 0C, Δθ = tC. Also, T = 86,400 seconds.
