Rumford and the Teapots--A Demonstration of Thermal Imaging.
Putley, E. H.; Burgess, D. E.
Physics Education, v19 n1 p20-23 Jan 1984
Thermal imagers are able to form images of scenes because the thermal emissions from different elements of the scene as viewed by the imager differ from each other. Several demonstrations with a thermal imager and a discussion of Count Rumford's 1807 experiment are presented. (JM)
