What is Thermal Expansion?
Thermal expansion is the phenomenon observed in solids, liquids, and gases. In this process, an object or body expands on the application of heat (temperature). Thermal expansion defines the tendency of an object to change its dimension either in length, density, area, or volume due to heat. When the substance is heated it increases its kinetic energy. Thermal expansion is of three types:
1. Linear expansion
2. Area expansion
3. Volume expansion
How to Calculate Relationship between Coefficients of Volume and Linear Expansion?
Relationship between Coefficients of Volume and Linear Expansion calculator uses Coefficient of Volume Expansion = 3*Coefficient of Linear Thermal Expansion to calculate the Coefficient of Volume Expansion, The Relationship Between Coefficients of Volume and Linear Expansion formula calculates the coefficient of volume expansion for the isotropic materials by using the coefficient of linear expansion. Coefficient of Volume Expansion is denoted by β symbol.
