SL362 Energy transfer by radiation engineering teaching equipment Thermal Lab Equipment

  1. Description

Thermal radiation is a non-material-bound energy transport by means of electromagnetic oscillations in a certain wavelength range. Any body with a temperature above zero Kelvin emits radiation known as thermal radiation. Thermal radiation includes UV radiation, light radiation and infrared radiation. Radiation covers the wavelength range visible to the human eye.

The SL 362 experimental unit contains two radiation sources: a heat radiator and a light emitter. Thermal radiation is detected by means of a thermopile. Light radiation is recorded by means of a luxmeter with photodiode. Colours can be sSTup between the emitter and the detector. All components are mounted on an optical bench. The distance between the optical elements can be read from a scale along the optical bench.

Luxmeter, thermopile and light emitter can be rotated to study how the angle of incidence affects the radiation intensity. The angles are read off the angular scale.

The optical elements are used to investigate the reflection, absorption and transmission of different materials at different wavelengths and temperatures. The radiant power of both emitters can be adjusted. The aim of the experiments is to check optical laws: eg Kirchhoff’s law of radiation, the Stefan-Boltzmann law, Lambert’s distance and direction law.
