Coefficient of Thermal Expansion of Cobalt (Co) & Facts, Color, Uses ...

Size of things changes depending on the coefficient of thermal expansion. It's even the case for Cobalt. Ok, so what is the coefficient of thermal expansion for an atom of Co?

Note: Learn more about the coefficient of thermal expansion here.

In the case of Cobalt this thermal coefficient is 13 10^-6 K^-1. By the way, did you know there are cool facts about Cobalt that most don't know? Check this...

Cobalt Data

Cobalt Coefficient of Thermal Expansion

Citation

When you need to include a fact or piece of information in an assignment or essay you should also include where and how you found that piece of information.

That gives credibility to your paper and it is sometimes required in higher education.

To make your life (and citation) easier just copy & paste the information below into your assignment or essay:

Luz, Gelson. "Coefficient of Thermal Expansion of Cobalt (Co) & Facts, Color, Uses ..." Materials. Gelsonluz.com. dd mmmm. yyyy. <URL>

Now replace dd, mmmm and yyyy with the day, month, and year you browsed this page. Also replace URL for the actual url of this page (The < and > stay, ok?). This citation format is based on MLA.
