Formula (1) can also be used with SI units. The expansion coefficient must be adjusted to oC.
An alloy steel pipe with length 100 feet is heated from 32 to 212oF. The expansion coefficient is 8 10-6 (in/inoF).
The expansion of the pipe can be calculated as:
dl = (8 10-6 in/inoF) (100 ft) (12 in/ft) ((212 oF) - (32 oF))
= 1.728 inches
