Strip made from two metals that bend when heated?
That is called a bimetallic (bimetal, bi-metal or bi-metallic) strip. The strip is made of two layers of different metals. The metals expand or contract with changes in temperature. The two metals have different rates of expansion/contraction with temperature which causes the strip to bend. ...
Asked in Physics
Why does a bimetallic strip curve when it is heated?
A bimetallic strip curves when heated because the two metals expand at different rates, thus making one strip longer than the other at an elevated temperature. Since the two metals are bonded together, the strip is forced into a curve to accomodate the resulting difference in length of its two parts. ...
