A bimetallic strip is made up of two different metal strips , iron and brass , welded or riveted together.So when it is heated , which of the metal expands more ? And when it is cooled , which of the metal contracts more ? Are iron and brass the only metals used in making the bimetallic strip ? How about other metals ? Thank you very much for viewing my question . I hope you will reply soon as I need it urgently ! Thank you once again.
