Sunlight Intensity and Reflectivity
In this lab, students will use a light sensor, a fast-response temperature probe, and a stainless steel temperature probe to explore the concept that air temperatures near the earth's surface result largely from the interplay of the sun's incoming energy and the absorption, reflection, and radiation of that energy by materials on the earth's surface.Preview Download
Featured PASCO Equipment
The Wireless Light Sensor provides live data for light level (lux), illuminance, UV Index, and color intensity.
The Wireless Temperature Sensor is a general-purpose sensor found in many science labs. With a rugged, waterproof design, and long-lasting battery, students can spend more time collecting data and less time dealing with equipment.
Many lab activities can be conducted with our Wireless, PASPORT, or even ScienceWorkshop sensors and equipment. For assistance with substituting compatible instruments, contact PASCO Technical Support. We're here to help.
