This unit visually reinforces heat conductivity lessons.
- Five metals included: aluminum, brass, copper, nickel, andsteel
- Instructions included
It demonstrates how five different metals—aluminum, brass, copper, nickel, and steel—conduct heat. The five rods are heated over a flame simultaneously, and students gauge what metal conducts heat best by observing how fast the wax at the tip of each rod melts.
Ordering information: The apparatus comes with instructions. Wax and a heat source are required but not included.
