Hello student,
Can you instead upload a scanned question.
What I understand from the question is that you want to know which relation you should use when you have thermal expansion and when you expansion under Hooke’s Law.
Hooke’s Law is valid when the expansion takes place under the weight of the body iytself.
The Thermal expansion rule is applied when you give heat to the object and under that heat the object expands.
Thanks & Regards

Dear student,
You can use the hooke’s law when there is an extension of the length or the string/mass/object but if there is some amount of heat supplied, in that case the coefficient of thermal expansion needs to be applied.

Sumit
