Concept #1: Linear Thermal Expansion

Practice: On a very cold day at a temperature of –12°C, a power line made of aluminum between two support towers measures exactly 150.56m. You go out on a hot day and measure the power line to be exactly 150.71m. What is the temperature (in °C) outside? The linear expansion coefficient of aluminum is 2.4×10-5.
