# Thermal Expansion Force Calculator, Formula, Thermal Expansion Force Calculation

## Thermal Expansion Force Calculator:

Enter the values of Young’s Modulus of the material E(PSI) , Thermal expansion coefficient a(inches/inches * F), Change in Temperature T(F) & cross sectional area A(inches2)    to determine the value of Thermal Expansion Force F(lbf) .

 Enter Young’s Modulus of the Material: PSI Enter Thermal Expansion Coefficient: inches/inches * F Enter Change in Temperature: F Enter Cross Sectional Area: inches2 Result – Thermal Expansion Force: lbf

## Thermal Expansion Force Formula:

The Young’s Modulus of the material E(PSI) in PSI into multiply to the Thermal expansion coefficient a(inches/inches * F) in inches/inches*F and multiply the Change in Temperature T(F) in F and again multiply the cross sectional area A(inches2) in inches square is equal to the Thermal Expansion Force F(lbf) in lbf.

The Formula of Thermal Expansion Force can be writtern as,

F(lbf) = E(PSI) * a(inches/inches * F) * T(F) * A(inches2)

Here,

F(lbf) = Thermal Expansion Force in lbf

E(PSI) = Young’s Modulus of the material in PSI

a(inches/inches * F) = Thermal expansion coefficient in inches/inches*F

T(F) = Change in Temperature in F

A(inches2) = cross sectional area in inches square

### Example Problems for  Thermal Expansion Force:

1)Calculate the Thermal Expansion Force and given for E = 5000PSI , a  = 2 inches / inches * F , T = 6 F , A = 10inches2.

F = E * a * T * A

F = 5000 * 2 * 6 * 10

F = 6,00,000lbf.

2)Calculate the cross sectional are and given for E = 5000PSI , a  = 2 inches / inches * F , T = 6 F , F = 6,00,000lbf.
