1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data In a bimetallic strip of brass and copper which curls when heated, the brass is on the inside of the curve. True or false? 2. Relevant equations deltaL=alpha*Lo*deltaT 3. The attempt at a solution It is false but I do not get why. Brass has a higher coefficient of linear expansion so if it is in the inside, I suppose it will expand faster than the copper causing stress in the copper to curl?
