Volumetric Thermal Expansion

Volumetric thermal expansion (also known as volume thermal expansion) takes place in gasses and liquids when a change in temperature, volume or type of substance occures.   

Volumetric Thermal Expansion FORMULA

\(\large{ \Delta V  =  \beta   V_o  \Delta T }\)         

\(\large{ \frac { \Delta V}  { V_o }  =  \beta   \Delta T }\) 


\(\large{ \beta }\)   (Greek symbol beta) = volumetric thermal expansion coefficient

\(\large{ \Delta T }\) = temperature differential

\(\large{ \Delta V }\) = volume differential

\(\large{ V_o }\) = origional volume of object
