# Linear Thermal Expansion

`\DeltaL = a*L_1*(T_2-T_1)`

Linear Thermal Expansion Calculator.

Linear Thermal Expansion Calculator.

**Enter 'x' in the field to be calculated.**This tool calculates the linear expansion of a material under the effect of a temperature change,

`\DeltaL = a*L_1*(T_2-T_1)`

ΔL: linear thermal expansion in meter

a: coefficient of linear thermal expansion in 1/K

L_{1}: initial length in meter

T_{1}: initial temperature in Kelvin

T_{2}: final temperature in Kelvin
