Rubber Elasticity
Subject: Physics | Topics:

Temperature affects the firmness of elastomers within an unusual way. When the elastomer is assumed to stay a stretched point out, heating causes those to contract. Rubber elasticity details the mechanical behavior of several polymers, especially people that have cross-links. Invoking the theory of rubber elasticity, one considers a polymer chain in an crosslinked network as a possible entropic spring.
