Expansion of two metal objects Classes Used: PHYS 153
Ring on stand, ball, propane torch
Place the ball on the ring (it should sit there nicely). Heat the setup up with the torch. The ring will expand more than the ball, allowing the ball to fall.
The ball can become quite hot, so be wary of where it will fall. Updated on: 06/13/13
