Using an aluminum bridge to demonstrate rate of heat transfer through conduction. Classes Used: PHYS 153
To demonstrate rates of heat transfer between a thermal reservoir at constant temperature and a block of aluminum. This demo shows how rate of transfer is dependent on material properties as well as the amount of material and the distance over which the energy is transferred.
Aluminum and steel strips, aluminum blocks, thermal grease, hot plate, vernier probe with logger pro
