How Materials Respond to Heat
Lecture no. 13 from the course: Thermodynamics: Four Laws That Move the Universe
Taught by Professor Jeffrey C. Grossman | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course
Turn to the problem of thermal energy flow and volume. This phenomenon causes materials to expand when heated and contract when cooled. Analyze these events at the atomic scale, and study the unusual behavior of water when it freezes—an attribute that is essential to life as we know it.
