Question

# A bimetallic strip consists of metals and . It is mounted rigidly at the base as shown. The metal has a higher coefficient of expansion compared to that for metal . when bimetallic strip is placed in a cold bath

- It will bend towards the right
- It will bend towards the left
- It will not bend but shrink
- It will neither bend nor shrink

## The correct answer is: It will bend towards the left

### The metal X has a higher coefficient of expansion compared to that for metal Y so, on placing bimetallic strip in a cold bath, X will shrink more than . Hence, the strip will bend towards the left.
