Q: A uniform pressure ‘P’ is exerted on all sides of a solid cube at temperature 0°C. In order to bring the volume of the cube to the original volume, the temperature of the cube must be increased by t°C. If α is the linear coefficient and K be the bulk modulus of the material of the cube, then t is equal to

(a) \displaystyle \frac{3P}{K \alpha}

(b) \displaystyle \frac{P}{2 K \alpha}

(c) \displaystyle \frac{P}{3 K \alpha}

(d) \displaystyle \frac{P}{K \alpha}

Ans: (c)
