Expansion means, change or increase in length. If the change in length is along one dimension (length) over the volume, then it is called linear expansion. Here the reason behind the expansion is the change in temperature Thus, it is implied that the change in temperature will reflect in the rate of expansion. How much material can withstand its original shape and size when it is illuminated by the heat radiation is well explained using this concept.
