A solid aluminum {eq}\left [ E = 70 GPa; \alpha =22.5\times 10^{-6}/^{\circ}C \right ] {/eq} rod (1) is connected to a solid bronze {eq}\left [ E = 100 GPa; \alpha =16.9\times 10^{-6}/^{\circ}C \right ] {/eq} rod (2) flange B as shown. Aluminum rod (1) has an outside diameter of 46 mm and bronze rod (2) has an outside diameter of 144 mm. t The bars are unstressed when the structure is assembled at {eq}30^{\circ}C {/eq}. After the 300- kN loads is applied to flange B, the temperature increases to {eq}45^{\circ}C {/eq}.

Determine the normal force in rod (2).

Hooke's law:

Hook's law is the law which is valid in the elastic region where stress is directly proportional to strain upto elastic limit. The slope of the stress-strain diagram gives the value of the Young's Modulus for the given material.
