Control the temperature and observe the radiation rate from four different surfaces.
See the Buying Guide for this item's required, recommended, and additional accessories.
For quantitative experiments in thermal radiation, an accurate source is as important as an accurate sensor. With the Thermal Radiation Cube, students control the temperature (up to 120 °C) and observe the radiation rate from 4 different surfaces: black matte, white matte, polished aluminum and dull aluminum. With the Radiation Sensor, students can quantitatively investigate: radiation from different surfaces at a single temperature; radiation from a single surface at different temperatures (Stefan-Boltzmann Law); and the absorptive and reflective properties of substances (window glass is provided).
- Electrically Heated: The 100-watt bulb inside eliminates the danger of an open flame and the inconvenience of water-heated cubes. Temperature is conveniently controlled with the power control knob.
- Thick Aluminum Walls: The aluminum walls of the cube are 6 mm thick, providing efficient heat conduction so the temperature is constant to within a fraction of a degree at all points on the cube.
- Thermistor: A 100 kΩ thermistor embedded in one wall of the cube provides accurate temperature measurement with no thermometer to break.
