Statement of a problem № 11236


One January morning in 1943, a warm chinook wind rapidly raised the temperature in Spearfish, South Dakota, from below freezing to +12.0 oC. As the chinook died away, the temperature fell to -20.0 oC in 27.0 minutes. Suppose that a 19-m aluminum flagpole were subjected to this temperature change. Find the average speed at which its height would decrease, assuming the flagpole responded instantaneously to the changing temperature?
