Answer:The original volume of the metal sphere is approximately 1 cm³

Explanation:The given parameters are;

The temperature change of the metal ball, ΔT = 30°C = 30 K

The new volume of the metal ball, V₂ = 1.0018 cm³

The linear expansivity of the material ball, α = 2.0 × 10⁻⁵ K⁻¹

We have;

d₂ = d₁·(1 + α·ΔT)

Where;

d₁ = The original diameter of the metal ball

d₂ = The new diameter of the ball

From the volume of the ball, V₂, we have;

V₂ = 1.0018 cm³ = (4/3)×π×r₂³

Where;

r₂ = The new radius = d₂/2

∴ V₂ = 1.0018 cm³ = (4/3)×π×(d₂/2)³

∴ d₂ = ∛(2³ × 1.0018 cm³/((4/3) × π)) ≈ 1.241445 cm

d₁ = d₂/(1 + α·ΔT)

∴ d₁ ≈ 1.241445 cm/(1 + 2.0 × 10⁻⁵·K × 30 K) ≈ 1.24070058 cm

The original volume of the metal ball, V₁ = (4/3)×π×(d₁/2)³

∴ V₁ = (4/3)×π×(1.24070058/2)³ ≈ 0.99999902845 cm³ ≈ 1 cm³

The original volume of the metal sphere, V₁ ≈ 1 cm³.
