    Solid materials are atoms held together by
    forces that we can model with springs
    The atoms aren't absolutely still. They are
    always subjected to some kind of energy that
    causes them to vibrate
    but the springs tend to expand more than they
    do contract so additional amounts of energy
    cause expansion
