Bar Breaking Apparatus
Physics Educational Materials
Heat/Thermodynamics Learning Activities
This apparatus is useful for studying forces during thermal contraction and expansion.
- 13" long bar
- Contains iron base, bar with tension nut, and breaking bars
The bar breaking apparatus provides a very sturdy and user-friendly method by which to introduce students to the forces that can occur during thermal contraction and thermal expansion. Students can experience and study the forces of thermal contraction.
