Denote by 
α : the coefficient of linear expansion 
β : the coefficient of surface expansion 
γ : the coefficient of volumetric expansion 

Then a length increases as 

L → L ( 1 + α ΔT) 

But this means that for isotropic (same in every direction) expansion a surface (length x length) increases as 

A → A ( 1 + α ΔT)( 1 + α ΔT) ≈ A (1 +2 α ΔT) 
where we have neglected the (usually very small) square term (α ΔT)² . 

Comparing with the (definition of β) expression

A → ( 1 + βΔT) , we see the relation 

β = 2α . 

Likewise 

V → V ( 1 + γ ΔT) from the definition of volumetric expansion coefficient. 
But also we can approximate (volume = length x length x length) 

V → V ( 1 + α ΔT)³ ≈ V ( 1 + 3 α ΔT) , neglecting higher powers of α ΔT. 

Hence 
γ = 3 α
