Final Length

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics

Final Length Formula

\(\large{ l_f =  \alpha_l \; l_i  \; \left( T_f \;- \; T_i \right) + l_i   }\)  (linear thermal expansion coefficient

Where:

\(\large{ l_f }\) = final length

\(\large{ l_i }\) = initial length

\(\large{ \alpha_l }\)   (Greek symbol alpha) = linear thermal expansion coefficient

\(\large{ T_f }\) = final temperature

\(\large{ T_i }\) = initial temperature
