Answer :

Here, we apply Pythagoras theorem to find x in terms of L.

From the figure, it is clear that

As, ΔL2 is a very small quantity, we can neglect it.

(here, we multiply and divide 2 in the numerator and denominator)

We know,


αsteel = 1.2× 10-5 /°C and ΔT = 20 °C. Therefore,

So, the displacement is about 11 cm.
