Mathematically, thermal expansion is described using the coefficient of thermal expansion (α), which quantifies how a material's size changes with temperature. The formula for linear thermal expansion, which applies to one-dimensional changes in length, is as follows:

ΔL = α * L * ΔT


ΔL is the change in length of the material.

α (alpha) is the coefficient of linear thermal expansion, typically given in units of per degree Celsius (°C)^(-1) or per degree Fahrenheit (°F)^(-1).

L is the original length of the material.

ΔT is the change in temperature in degrees Celsius (°C) or Fahrenheit (°F).

Humidity feels worse in summer than winter

Warm air can hold more moisture than cool air, causing high temperatures to increase humidity's ability to thwart temperature regulation.

A 1-degree Fahrenheit (0.55-degree Celsius) rise in temperature equals as much as a 4% increase in atmospheric water vapour. This is why humidity feels w...
