## Steel Tape Temperature Correction Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Steel Tape Temperature Correction.

TC = .0000065*L*(TF-TI)

Variables:

- TC is the Steel Tape Temperature Correction (m)
- L is the measure length (m)
- TF is the final temperature (C)
- TI is the initial temperature (C)

To calculate the steel tape temperature, subtract the initial measurement from the final measure, the multiply by the length times .0000065.

## How to Calculate Steel Tape Temperature Correction?

The following steps outline how to calculate the Steel Tape Temperature Correction.

- First, determine the measure length (m).
- Next, determine the final temperature (C).
- Next, determine the initial temperature (C).
- Next, gather the formula from above = TC = .0000065*L*(TF-TI).
- Finally, calculate the Steel Tape Temperature Correction.
- After inserting the variables and calculating the result, check your answer with the calculator above.

**Example Problem:**

Use the following variables as an example problem to test your knowledge.

measure length (m) = 3

final temperature (C) = 50

initial temperature (C) = 25

TC = .0000065*L*(TF-TI) =** ** ?
