Bimetallic Strip Demonstration
Physics Educational Materials
Heat/Thermodynamics Learning Activities
Bimetallic strips attached to wooden handle to study thermal energy.
- Comfortable wooden handle for safe experimentation
- Strip comprised of copper and steel
- Distinct and visible metals
- Hands on demonstration of expansion differences various metals
- Includes activity guide
The bimetallic strip activity is essential for demonstrating the principles of thermal expansion in metals. This allows students to understand how bimetallic strips are applied practically in things such as thermometers, thermostats and heating coils. Activity guide included.
