## Heat and Thermodynamics

Temperature scales: $\small T(K)=T(^{\circ}C)+273$

Temperature change: $\small Q=mc \Delta T$ (c is the specific heat.)

Phase change: $\small Q=mL$ (L is the latent heat of transformation.)

#### Thermal expansion

$\small \Delta L = \alpha L_{0} \Delta T$ ($\small \alpha$ is the coefficient of linear expansion.)

$\small \Delta V = \beta V_{0} \Delta T$ ($\small \beta$ is the coefficient of volume expansion.)
