Experiment 7: Coefficient of Linear Expansion Abstract Using an expansion apparatus which included fastened clips and a multimeter,  my lab  partner and I  measured the expansion of three solid rods of copper, aluminum and steel, as  well as its respective temperatures and their parameters as the objects temperature increased  by a boiler.  Based on this data, we were able to calculate the coefficient of linear expansion to  their values to nearly their given value.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
