I have some physics homework questions I need help with?
These are the only 4 questions I am having issues understanding. I have all my other homework questions finished but these ones especially the first one I just do not understand.
1. A brass vat is
long at room temperature (20°C). How much longer is it when it contains boiling water at 1 atm pressure?
2. An aluminum wing on a passenger jet is
long when its temperature is
At what temperature would the wing be 7 cm (0.07 m) shorter?
3. Air in a balloon does
of work while absorbing
of heat. What is its change in internal energy?
4. An apartment has the dimensions 16 m by 8 m by 5 m. The temperature is 25°C, and the relative humidity is 52 percent. What is the total mass (in kg) of water vapor in the air in the apartment?

1. the change in length is
length * thermal expansion coefficient * change in temp
the change in temp is 80ºC
look up the thermal coefficient for brass
2. same idea; look up coefficient for aluminum
3. 72J - 55J
4. Look up the amount of water vapor for saturation at 25º. Take 52% of that and multiply by the volume of the room.
