Description
LAB 5 – Thermal Physics 1. Thermal Expansion A. Copper (for example) Initial Temperature, [please get the reading in Multi-meter and use calibration factor to convert it into] Initial Length, Final Temperature, [similar like above] Elongation, Use the formula for thermal expansion, Also use the formula to find the error, B. For Aluminum/Steel [Do similarly] 2. Charles’ Law We know the volume of a cylinder is, . As during this process, only height is changing, therefore, we can conclude that Therefore we can write the relation of Charles’ Law for this experiment as follows: where is a proportionality constant. If the dependence between the height h of the cylinder and the temperature T is line
