Investigate how different types of metals conduct heat as you hold the center of the conductometer over a flame. Small amounts of wax placed in wells at the end of each metal rod melt at different rates demonstrating the relative thermal conductivity of each metal. The five metal rods are steel, nickel (or iron), aluminum, copper, and brass. Wooden handle and instructions are provided.
