Final Volume

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Thermodynamics

Final Volume formula

\(\large{ V_f =  V_i \; \left( 1 \;+\; 3 \; \overrightarrow{\alpha_l} \; \Delta T  \right)     }\) 

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ V_f }\) = final volume \(\large{ in^3 }\) \(\large{ mm^3 }\)
\(\large{ \overrightarrow{\alpha_l} }\)   (Greek symbol alpha) = linear thermal expansion coefficient \(\large{ \frac{in}{in\;F} }\) \(\large{ \frac{mm}{mm\;C} }\)
\(\large{ \Delta T }\) = temperature differential \(\large{ F }\) \(\large{ C }\)
\(\large{ V_i }\) = initial volume \(\large{ in^3 }\) \(\large{ mm^3 }\)
