# A metallic rod 1 cm long with a square cross-section isheated through 1°C. If Young's modulus of elasticity ofthe metal is E and the mean coefficient of linearexpansion is alpha per degree Celsius, then thecompressional force required to prevent the rod fromexpanding along its length is : (Neglect the change of crosssectional area)

Thermal expansion in form of change in length
l2 = l1(1+alpha*t)
Young’s modulus = E
E = (F/A)/(l/L)
E = FL/Al
L = l + del l
E = F (l+del l )/A* del l
Find the value of F
F = EA(alpha *t)/(1+ alpha *t)
