Two identical rectangular strips, one of copper and other of steel , are riveted to form a bimetallic strip. What will happen on heating?


Expert Answer

Step 1

The figure shows the bimetallic strip of before heating,

Physics homework question answer, step 1, image 1
Step 2

Linear expansion coefficient of copper is greater than the steel, so on heating the bimetallic strips copper g...
