Changing Shape by Chris Oxlade

Which materials stretch?

Is it easier to change soft or hard materials?

What happens when we try to bend brittle objects?

Read Changing Shape to learn about the different ways we can change a material by stretching, squeezing, bending, and twisting it. Find out why it is easier to change the shape of some materials than others, and explore why some materials keep a new shape and others change back.

Books in the Changing Materials series look at how materials can be changed in various ways. Each book examines materials we commonly encounter and explores their properties through practical and familiar examples. Investigation spreads give readers the chance to find out for themselves how materials can be changed.
