Demonstrate Thermal Expansion with Bimetallic Strips
Thin strips of two different metals (brass and Iron) are laminated together in this simple demonstration, also known as a Bimetallic Strip. Hold the bar over a flame and watch the bar bend because of the different thermal expansion rates.
- Bar length is 20 cm.
- Bar and handle length is 30 cm.
