# Length

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Classical Mechanics Length (also called distance) is the dimension from one point to another point or the dimension from one end to the other end of an object.

## length formulas

 $$\large{ \Delta l = l_f - l_i }$$ $$\large{ l = \frac {\pi\; r\;\theta}{180} }$$ (angular deflection) $$\large{ l = \frac { 2 \; h_l \; d_p \; g } { f_d \; v^2 } }$$ (Darcy-Weisbach equation) $$\large{ l = \frac { h_1 \;-\; h_2} { i} }$$ (hydraulic gradient) $$\large{ l = \frac{ \lambda }{ Kn } }$$ (Knudsen number) $$\large{ l = k_t \; \frac{\Delta T}{\dot {Q}_t} }$$ (linear thermal expansion coefficient) $$\large{ l = \frac {M}{F} }$$ (moment) $$\large{ l_s = \sqrt{ \frac{ 2 \; PE_s }{ k_s } } }$$ (spring potential energy) $$\large{ \Delta l = \epsilon \; l_i }$$ (strain)
