1. Presentaon and organizaona. Most materials expand when they heat up. ∆ l=α loΔT. α is coecient of linear expansion for the material. Length depends on loΔT.

2. Introducona. In this experiment, purpose is to measure α for copper, aluminum and steel. Three metal are isotropic which means that expansion is the same in all direcons. Measure the temperatures. α would be independent of the absolute temperature.

3. ProcedureApparatues : expansion tube apparatus, steam generator, elevaon block , digital mulmeter, steel, Cu, and Al tubes, contriners for condensaon
