An Experiment in Heat Conduction Using Hollow Cylinders
Ortuno, M.; Marquez, A.; Gallego, S.; Neipp, C.; Belendez, A.
European Journal of Physics, v32 n4 p1065-1075 Jul 2011
An experimental apparatus was designed and built to allow students to carry out heat conduction experiments in hollow cylinders made of different materials, as well as to determine the thermal conductivity of these materials. The evolution of the temperature difference between the inner and outer walls of the cylinder as a function of time is analysed, and when the process reaches the steady state regime the thermal conductivity can be easily calculated. Several materials such as wood, plastic and metals are considered and the values of their thermal conductivities, obtained experimentally, are compared with those given in the reference list. (Contains 3 footnotes, 1 table, and 10 figures.)
