  • Physics Required Practical: Radiation and Absorption
    • 1. Place the Leslie cube on to a heatproof mat.
      • 2. Fill the cube with very hot water and replace the lid of the cube.
        • 3. Use the detector to measure the amount of infrared radiated from each surface.  Make sure that before a reading is taken the detector is the same distance from each surface.
          • 4. Draw a bar chart to show the amount of infrared radiated against the type of surface.
    • Care must be taken when boiling (or very hot) water is used. Students should not carry containers of hot water across the laboratory.
      • Take care with black surfaces as these can reach high temperatures (~80 °C).
