# Which liquid expands the most?

### Which liquid expands the most?

a is often around 10-3°C-1 , the liquids thus dilate about 20 times more than a solid. Mercury, which is a metal, has a coefficient of dilation about 5 times more lower than that of the majority of liquids. For water, we have an anomaly: its volume is not minimum for 0°C but for 4°C.

### Why does iron expand?

Most bodies to expand under the effect of heat. However, some solids have the opposite behavior: they to contract when the temperature increases. Blacksmiths know that metal dilates under the effect of heat and to contracts when it cools.

### Does the plastic expand?

The material of the tube: different materials to expand at different rates. For example, different types of plastic (PP, PVC, PE, etc.) and different metals (steel, copper, iron, etc.) have different expansion rates.

### How to shrink metal?

the metal to retract a little if it is put in the cold and expands a little also if it is heated.

### How does isothermal expansion work?

Isothermal Expansion – Isothermal Compression. Assume an isothermal expansion of helium (i → f) in a frictionless piston (closed system). Gas expansion is propelled by absorption of thermal energy Qadd.

### What are thermal regulation disorders?

Thermal regulation disorders: what are they? Disorders of thermal regulation or thermal dysregulation are due to a disruption of the center of thermoregulation which is under the control of the hypothalamus. How do thermal regulation disorders manifest themselves and how can they be remedied?

### What is Thermal Dysregulation?

Disorders of thermal regulation or thermal dysregulation are due to a disruption of the center of thermoregulation which is under the control of the hypothalamus.

### What is isothermal expansion?

Assume an isothermal expansion of helium (i → f) in a frictionless piston (closed system). Gas expansion is propelled by absorption of thermal energy Qadd. Thermal Engineering An isothermal process is a thermodynamic process in which the temperature of the system remains constant (T = const).
