In general fluids, gases und solids expand when heated. Water
though has a special property, which lets it stand out from most
other fluids: Its density reaches its maximum at 4 °C. Below and
above 4 °C the density decreases. Therefor ice is lighter than
water and swims at the surface.
In this experiment the anomaly of water shall be demonstrated in
an ice bath with two thermometers.
- Optimised for demonstration experiments: Transformation from horizontal into vertical direction
- Demonstrative measurement value indication using Cobra4 MobileLink2 with large-scale display
- Glass equipment, liquid levels and flowing liquids can be observed easily on the plain background
