Tyndall's Apparatus
A meatal rod (like the ones to the left) is placed through the hole in the left end of the bar, and tightened against two beveled edges by turning the handle at the right end. The bar is heated and the handle tightened further as the bar expands. As the bar cools off, the bolt will suddenly break.
