The thermal expansion of silver, gold, copper, nickel, molybdenum and tungsten has been measured by the dilatation method. The thermal expansion values of silver, gold, copper and nickel have also been evaluated from lattice parameter measurements by X-ray diffraction. These six metals were found to exhibit a nearly uniform expansion over the temperature ranges covered. The thermal expansion values obtained by the dilatation method are in good agreement with those determined by X-ray diffraction. The present results appear also to agree well with those reported previously in the literature.
