# Air - Volume vs. Temperature

## Air volume vs. temperature correction factor compared to Normal Air Conditions.

The volume correction factor of air at higher or lower temperatures than normal air:

### Example - Volume Change when Air is Heated

2 m3 of air is heated from 22oC to 43oC. The volume correction factor is 1.08 and the new volume can be calculated as

(2 m3) 1.08 = 2.16 m3
