# When a liquid is heated in a glass vessel, its coefficient of apparent expansion is $1.03 \times 10^{-3}/^{\circ}C$. When the same liquid is heated in a copper vessel, its coefficient of apparent expansion is $1.006 \times 10^{-3}/^{\circ}C$.If the coefficient of linear expansion of copper is $17 \times 10^{-6}/^{\circ}C$, then the coefficient of linear expansion of the glass is

$\begin {array} {1 1} (1)\;8.5 \times 10^{-4}/^{\circ}C & \quad (2)\;9 \times 10^{-6}/^{\circ}C \\ (3)\;27 \times 10^{-6}/^{\circ}C & \quad (4)\;10 \times 10^{-4}/^{\circ}C \end {array}$

(2) $9 \times 10^{-6}/^{\circ}C$
