|M: WM&S - 055||Slide Whistle||
A slide whistle is used to demonstrate how pitch changes with the length of the cavity.
|T: H - 002||Sagging Wire||
As current is passed through a wire, it heats up and expands
|T: H - 003||Bimetallic Strips||
A strip composed of two different types of metals is dipped into a dewar of liquid Nitrogen. Since the metals contract at a different rate, they will curve one direction or the other.
|T: H - 005||Differential Gas Thermometer||
A differential glass thermometer shows how liquids expand as they get warm.
|T: H - 006||Expansion and Contraction of Rings using Ball||
A metal ring expands when heated. A metal ring contracts when cool. This is shown by whether or not they fit over a metal ball.
|T: H - 010||Lamp with Heat||
The wires of a small lamp are placed into an open flame. As the wires heat up, the lamp dims due to the change in resistance of the wire.
|T: H - 012||Low Temperature Behavior||
Assorted objects are submerged in liquid nitrogen and smashed
|T: H - 014||Thermal Conductivity Comparison||
Rods of various metals have steel balls attached by wax. One end of the rods are heated in the flame of a bunsen burner. Over time, the balls on the rods drop off at different times.
