I1-13 THERMAL EXPANSION - BIMETAL STRIP

Additional Info

  • ID Code: I1-13
  • Purpose: Demonstrates differential thermal expansion
  • Description: Strips of invar steel and brass are welded together to form a bimetal strip. Because their coefficients of thermal expansion are different, heating the bimetal strip over a burner results in bending, as illustrated. This type of material is used in some types of thermostatic controllers.
  • Availability: Available
  • Loc codes: I1, I0
