Question

A certain telescope forms an image of part of a cluster of stars on a square silicon charge-coupled detector (CCD) chip 2.00 cm on each side. A star field is focused on the CCD chip when it is first turned on and its temperature is 20.0°C. The star field contains 5 342 stars scattered uniformly. To make the detector more sensitive, it is cooled to -100°C. How many star images then fit onto the chip? The average coefficient of linear expansion of silicon is 4.68 X 10-6 (°C)-1.
