Statement of a problem № 41071


The tallest building in the world, according to some architectural standards, is the Taipei l01 in Taiwan, at a height of 1671 feet. Assume that this height was measured on a cool spring day when the temperature was 15.5°C. You could use the building as a son of giant thermometer on a hot summer day by carefully measuring its height. Suppose you do this and discover that the Taipei l01 is 0.471 foot taller than its official height. What is the temperature, assuming that the building is in thermal equilibrium with the air and that its entire frame is made of steel?
