# Area Thermal Expansion

on . Posted in Thermodynamics Area thermal expansion, abbreviated as $$\Delta A$$, also known as aerial thermal expansion, happens when any change in temperature expands the area.

## Area Thermal Expansion Formula

$$\large{ \Delta A = A_f - A_i }$$
Symbol English Metric
$$\large{ \Delta A }$$ = area thermal expansion $$\large{in^2}$$   $$\large{mm^2}$$
$$\large{ A_f }$$ = final area of object $$\large{in^2}$$  $$\large{mm^2}$$
$$\large{ A_i }$$ = initial area of object $$\large{in^2}$$  $$\large{mm^2}$$

## Area Thermal Expansion Formula

$$\large{ \Delta A = 2 \; \overrightarrow{\alpha_l} \; A_i \; \Delta T }$$
Symbol English Metric
$$\large{ \Delta A }$$ = area thermal expansion $$\large{in^2}$$   $$\large{mm^2}$$
$$\large{ A_i }$$ = initial area of object $$\large{in^2}$$  $$\large{mm^2}$$
$$\large{ \overrightarrow{\alpha_l} }$$   (Greek symbol alpha) = linear thermal expansion coefficient $$\large{ \frac{in}{in\;F} }$$ $$\large{ \frac{mm}{mm\;C} }$$
$$\large{ \Delta T }$$ = temperature differential $$\large{F}$$ $$\large{C}$$
