Thermal Sensitive Foils in Physics Experiments
Bochnícek, Zdenek; Konecný, Pavel
Physics Education, v49 n4 p419-424 Jul 2014
The paper describes a set of physics demonstration experiments where thermal sensitive foils are used for the detection of the two dimensional distribution of temperature. The method is used for the demonstration of thermal conductivity, temperature change in adiabatic processes, distribution of electromagnetic radiation in a microwave oven and detection of resonant acoustic oscillations in a Rubens' tube.
