Part A
The Concorde was a supersonic aircraft used for
trans-Atlantic travel in the 1980s and 1990s, having
a length of 61.6 m when sitting on the ground on a
typical day when the temperature is 14.0°C. The
Concorde is primarily made of aluminum. In flight at
twice the speed of sound, friction with the air warms
the Concorde's skin and causes the aircraft to
lengthen by 29.0 cm. (The passenger cabin is on
rollers, so the airplane expands around the
passenger cabin.)
Take the coefficient of linear expansion for
aluminum to be a = 2.40x10-5 /°C.
What is the temperature T of the Concorde's skin in flight?
