Main Question or Discussion Point
Hmm...some experimenting led to an interesting result. I attached a weight to a rubber band and suspended the rubber band in some hot water. The rubber band expanded. I repeated the experiment in cold water and the band shrank. An expected result, yes? Well I redid the experiment in air and I got something totally different. I used a hairdryer and heated the band with the weight on it and the band shrunk...anybody care to explain why?
