Hello, my colleague and I are having a disagreement about the amount of thermal expansion in a particular part we are working on (manufacturing environment). It is a piece of structural steel, which has a thermal expansion value of 12 (10^-6/K according to the chart at http://www.owlnet.rice.edu/~msci301/ThermalExpansion.pdf - please check out to confirm ) and we are wondering how much linear expansion would take place over a distance of 2.794 meters with every 1 degree (K/C) change in temperature. I will not bias the answers by posting what each of us think. Please help us solve this debate. Thanks!
