Glossary » Units » Thermal Expansion Coefficient » Per Celsius Degree
Per Celsius Degree (/°C) is a unit in the category of Thermal expansion coefficient. It is also known as degrees, /degC, /deg C. This unit is commonly used in the INT unit system. Per Celsius Degree (/°C) has a dimension of Q-1 where Q is temperatur. It essentially the same as the corresponding standard SI unit /K.
Note that the seven base dimensions are M (Mass), L (Length), T (Time), Q (Temperature), N (Aamount of Substance), I (Electric Current), and J (Luminous Intensity).

Other units in the category of Thermal expansion coefficient include Microinch Per Inch Per Fahrenheit Degree (µin/in-°F), Micron Per Meter Per Celsius Degree (µm/m-°C), Per Fahrenheit Degree (/°F), and Per Kelvin (/K).
