Thermal Expansion

You can calculate which additional length a metal gets by heating to a certain temperaure

In this view the thermal expansion in length can be calculated from the original length and the temperature difference. There is no correction for illogical values (e.g. above melting point) - so examine, if your input is correct. You have to give two values and the third will be calculated. Be aware that the figures are only approximate and with one property value along the whole temperature range.

The property to be calculated can be seletced by the round button.

One can convert the results and the input in different units/dimension

The result - after clicking on the Calculate! button - and the input data can be copied to clipboard in a way that it can be pasted to spreadsheets for further calculations
