Problem 22RQ

Why does a bimetallic strip bend with changes in temperature?

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Solution 22RQ A bimetallic strip consists of two different metals. When heated, each metal expands differently from the other as each has different rates of expansion. Thus it will bend. Similarly, when cooled, each metal will have different rate of contraction. This will also cause them to contract differently and bend.
