Volumetric Thermal Expansion

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

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

FORMULA

\(\Delta V = 3 \alpha  V_i \Delta T   \)

\(\Delta V = \beta  V_i \Delta T   \) 

Where:

\(\Delta V\) = volume differential

\(\beta\) = volume thermal expansion coefficient

\(V_i\) = initial volume

\(\Delta T\) = temperature differential
