Product Description

Using a ball of wax, you will attach a paper clip to a copper wire. One end of the wire is then heated, and the paperclips fall, one after another, from the wire. The point of the lab is to measure how long is takes for the heat to be conducted along the wire, causing the paperclips to fall.
