There are 7 lessons in this physics tutorial covering Thermal Expansion. The tutorial starts with an introduction to Thermal Expansion and is then followed with a list of the separate lessons, the tutorial is designed to be read in order but you can skip to a specific lesson or return to recover a specific physics lesson as required to build your physics knowledge of Thermal Expansion. you can access all the lessons from this tutorial below.
In this Physics tutorial, you will learn:
You may have noticed that when a balloon is left for a long time on a cold surface such as on a tiled floor, it shrinks. On the other hand, when you forgot it near a heat source, it may explode. Why does this occur?
Do you know why the railway tracks have a certain distance from each other?
Why electric wires are not completely stretched?
What happens to the volume of objects when they are heated up? Cooled down?
These and many other questions will get answers during the explanation of thermal expansion phenomenon, provided in this tutorial.
