Solution

## The correct option is D 6 %The relation between superficial (or areal coefficient) and linear coefficient for a solid object is given by β=2α Given, percentage increase in length for a small change in temperature (α×ΔT)=3 % ∴ Percentage increase in area of cross-section for small change in temperature (β×ΔT)=2 (α×ΔT)=2×3=6 % Thus, Area of cross-section increases by 6 %. Hence, option (d) is the correct answer.
