Compound Bar / Strip
Availability: Contact Us
To demonstrate unequal expansion in different metals on heating. Highlights the role of temperature and materials in practical applications such as in thermostats. Consists of a bimetallic strip of brass and steel fitted in a plastic handle. The strip is about (l x w), 8"x3/8" (200 x 10mm). Due to differences in the co-efficients of linear expansion of both metals, the laminated strip bends dramatically on heating. Comes with a Teacher's Guide.
