I2-27: THERMAL EQUILIBRIUM BETWEEN ALUMINUM AND COPPER

Additional Info

  • ID Code: I2-27
  • Purpose: Show process of thermal equilibrium happening between touching aluminum and copper cylinders.
  • Description: Pieces of copper and aluminum are held together by a large C-clamp. Small holes are drilled into the pieces to a allow a digital thermometer probe to be inserted to measure the temperature of each block, showing that the blocks are initially the same temperature, at equilibrium. Remove the thermometer probes and put a flame under one block to create a temperature difference. Remove the flame, reinsert the probes, and watch as the blocks come to thermal equilibrium.
  • Availability: Available
  • Loc codes: I2, I0, tools
