Metals

Demonstrations and experiments on the physical properties of metals.

Some of the very different properties possessed by metals are first shown. Models are used to illustrate the characteristics of a metal, and an experiment with aluminium demonstrates its essential crystalline structure. Lawrence Bragg then discusses the treatment of metals and follows this by experiments demonstrating how different treatments can lead to metals possessing different properties.
