# Density of Material due to Temperature

### Density of Material due to Temperature Formula

$$\large{ \rho = \frac{\rho_o}{1 \;+\; \alpha_c \; \Delta T } }$$

Where:

$$\large{ \rho }$$   (Greek symbol rho) = material density due to temperature change

$$\large{ \rho_o }$$   (Greek symbol rho) = material density at reference temperature

$$\large{ \alpha_c }$$  (Greek symbol alpha) = material thermal expansion coefficient

$$\large{ \Delta T }$$ = temperature differential
