The coefficient of volumetric expansion of mercury is 1.8 × 10^{-4}/°C. If the temperature of 10.0 liters of mercury increases by 30°C, how much will the volume of the mercury increase by?

We will use the formula ΔV = βV_{0} ΔT. We plug in our known values and we get ΔV = (1.8 × 10^{-4}) (10) (30) = .054 liters.
