S417: Understanding plastics and temperature! in Splash 2019 (Apr. 06, 2019)
In this course we will use common plastic items to show how temperature outside of the normal range can greatly change the properties. We will show what happens to rubber balls when they are very cold and what happens to plastic spoons when they are very hot. We will understand why, although these are very different temperatures the reason the properties change is the same.
