Question

# Two metal rods A and B are having their initial lengths in the ratio 2:3 and coefficients of linear expansion in the ratio 3:4. When they are heated through the same temperature difference, the ratio of their linear expansion is :

A
1:2
B
2:3
C
3:4
D
4:3

Solution

## The correct option is A 1:2We know, $$dl = l \times \alpha \times dt$$$$dl_1/dl_2 = (l_1/l_2)(\alpha_1 / \alpha_2)= (2/3) (3/4) = 1/2$$Physics
