    Perfect

  • Bought to use with the American Chemical Society's middle school curriculum. The ball fits perfectly through the ring when cool but can't fit when hot. Solid construction, good wooden handles, and worked exactly as described. The kids were impressed with the demonstration so it got done twice. Definitely a specialized item, but worth it for us.
    Great demo

  • This is a fun and easy way to demonstrate thermal expansion. It always impresses kids and adults alike when we heat the ball over a flame and then it can no longer fit through the brass ring. As much as I like it for teaching, it seems to come out at parties as well to teach our guests some fun science.
