Question:

A real cubic expansivity is an increase in the volume of a liquid per unit volume per degree rise in temperature when heated in an inexpansible vessel. True or false? And give the explanation.

Thermal expansion:

Thermal expansion is the material property. The magnitude of thermal expansion varies with the microstructure of the material. Thermal expansion shows the change in the dimensions of the object during heating or cooling process.

Answer and Explanation:

In the real cubic expansion, the value of the cubical expansion of the liquid in the vessel is added to the amount of cubical expansion of the vessel. But in the question, the vessel is inexpansible, so the value of real cubic expansion will be the same as the expansion of the liquid alone.

Thus, the statement written in the question is true.
