Area

Area ( \(A\)) is the square units of a given plane.

Area Differential

Area differential is the difference between an expanded or reduced area of an object.

Area Differential FORMULA

\(\Delta A =  A_f  \;- \; A_i\)

Where:

\(\Delta A\) = area differential

\(A_i\) = initial area

\(A_f\) = final area

Area Thermal Expansion

Area Thermal Expansion FORMULA

\(\Delta A = \gamma  A_i \Delta T   \)

\(\Delta A = 2 \alpha  A_i \Delta T   \) 

Where:

\(\Delta A\) = area differential

\(\gamma\) = area thermal expansion coefficient

\(A_i\) = initial area

\(\Delta T\) = temperature differential
