2 1. Thermal Energy Activity: Warm up with the IR Camera! Any object at finite temperature has thermal energy. The amount of thermal energy stored in an object depends on its temperature and heat capacity. Materials and Tools Make sure that you have the following lab supplies: An IR camera A small petri dish (e.g., 3.5 cm diameter) A large petri dish (e.g., 9 cm diameter) A graduated cylinder A graduated dropper Hot water (>80 C) Ice water (<5 C) Tap water A timer (using your phone) Figure 2 Prediction In this activity, you will put a dish of hot or ice water into a dish of tap water (as illustrated in Figure 2) and observe what happens under an IR camera. Through this simple activity, you will also familiarize yourself with the operations of the IR camera, the color representations in IR images, and the inquiry process. Before you do anything, answer the following questions: 1. What will happen to the temperatures of the water in the two petri dishes? Explain why. 2. What approximately will be the final temperatures of the two dishes? Explain why. 2

3 Observation Follow these steps to conduct the experiment and observe the change of thermal pattern of the water in the two petri dishes over time through the IR camera: 1. Pour 30 ml of tap water into the large petri dish. If water does not cover the bottom surface of the large dish completely, gently shake the dish to make sure it does. 2. Carefully place the small dish in the middle of the large dish as shown in Figure 2. Don t let the water in the large dish flow into the small one. 3. Add a small amount of hot or ice water (e.g., 3-5 ml) to the small petri dish using the dropper and make sure that the water does not mix with the water in the large dish and the hot or ice water covers the bottom surface of the small dish completely. 4. Take an IR image from the top and pay attention to the colors in the IR image and how they correspond to different temperatures. 5. Point the aim cursor to the water in each dish to read its temperature. You should aim at the same locations in the two dishes every time you read the temperatures. Fill the temperature readings in the following table. 6. Observe the color changes over time and take an IR image every two minutes. While keeping the large dish completely in the view of the IR camera, move the IR camera as close to the dishes as possible. Time elapsed (minutes) Temperature of the water in the small dish ( C) Temperature of the water in the large dish ( C) Optional: Time elapsed (minutes) Temperature of the water in the small dish ( C) Temperature of the water in the large dish ( C) 3

4 Fill the IR images of the initial state, an intermediate state, and the final state of your observation in the following table: Initial IR image Intermediate IR image Final IR image Explanation Use the IR images that you have taken as evidence to check your prediction. Whether your prediction is correct or not, explain your observation based on the concepts of thermal energy, heat capacity, and thermal equilibrium. Back your explanation with your IR images. 1. What happened to the temperatures of the water in the two petri dishes? Explain why. 2. What approximately were the final temperatures of the two dishes? Explain why. Optional Experiments 1. Repeat the experiment with water of a different temperature in the small dish. If you have used hot water, try ice water this time, or vice versa. 4

5 2. Repeat the experiment with doubled or tripled volume of hot or ice water in the small dish. Questions Based on what you have learned from this activity, answer the following questions: 1. What can you do with the water in the small petri dish to increase the final temperature of the water in the large one? List all the possible methods and explain why they can work. 2. Suppose you are choosing an air conditioner to cool a room. What factors should you consider? 5

6 2. Conduction Activity: Two Thumbs Up! Thermal conduction is the diffusion of thermal energy through a material. Thermal energy diffuses at different rates in different materials. The ability of a material to diffuse thermal energy is known as the thermal conductivity. Materials and Tools Make sure that you have the following lab supplies: An IR camera A book A metal ruler (with high emissivity surface coating) A wood ruler Prediction Figure 3 Before you do anything, answer the following questions: 1. When you touch the two rulers, which one will feel colder? Explain why. 2. What will happen to the heat flow patterns of the two rulers after you touch them for a while? Select one from the following pictures and explain why. (a) (b) (c) (d) 3. What will happen to the temperature patterns of your two fingers right after you move them away from the rulers? Explain why. 6

8 (a) Initial state of rulers (b) State of rulers after thumbs press for 60 seconds (c) State of rulers immediately after thumbs move away (d) State of thumbs immediately after they move away from rulers Explanation Use the IR images that you and your partner have taken as evidence to check your prediction. Whether your prediction is correct or not, explain your observation based on the concepts of thermal conduction and thermal conductivity. Back your explanation with your IR images. 1. When you touched the two rulers, which one felt colder? Explain why. 2. What happened to the temperature patterns of the two rulers after you touched them for a while (Figure 3)? Explain why. 8

9 3. What happened to the temperature patterns of your two fingers right after you moved them away from the rulers (Figure 4)? Explain why. Questions Based on what you have learned from this activity, answer the following questions: 1. Suppose you are in a very hot place and the room temperature is 10 C above your body temperature. Which ruler will feel relatively cooler, the metal one or the wood one? Explain your answer. 2. Suppose you are making a door for your house and you would like to save energy for the house, which material should you use for the door, metal or wood? Explain your choice. Is your choice wise for both winter and summer conditions? Explain why or why not. 9

10 3. Radiation Activity: Catch Invisible Light! Any object at finite temperature emits thermal radiation -- invisible light that can travel through space. The radiated energy can be absorbed by another object, resulting in an increase of its temperature. This is called radiative heat transfer. Radiative heat transfer happens very fast as thermal radiation moves at the speed of light. Materials and Tools Make sure that you have the following lab supplies: An IR camera A few pieces of paper A few binder clips A ruler A timer (using your phone) A closed jar of hot water (> 80 C) A closed jar of ice water (<5 C) Figure 5 Prediction Before you do anything, answer the following questions: 1. What will happen to the temperature pattern of a piece of paper when it faces a jar of hot or ice water from the side (Figure 5)? Explain why. 2. What will happen to the temperature pattern of the paper when it is further away from the hot or ice water jar? Explain why. Figure 6 3. What will happen to the temperature pattern of the paper when it does not face the jar (Figure 6)? Explain why. 10

11 Observation 1. Put a jar of hot or ice water on a table where there is no other hot or cold objects on it. 2. Attach one or two binder clips to a piece of dry paper so that it stands on the table. 3. Move the paper close to the hot or cold jar (about 1 away), facing the jar. 4. Keep the paper in place for one minute. Take an IR image of the side of the paper facing away from the jar every 10 or 20 seconds and record the highest temperature of the paper in Table 3A below. To ensure consistent color contrast across IR images, make sure that the jar does not show up in the IR view when you take images. 5. Do not touch the paper or move your hands too close to it when taking images, or else the result might be affected. 6. Once the temperature of the paper stabilizes, move the paper 1 further away from the jar (but still facing the jar). Take an IR image and record the highest temperature of the paper in Table 3B below. Repeat this procedure for two or three more times. 7. Repeat 1-6 with the paper not facing the jar (Figure 6). Record your data in Table 3C and Table 3D below. Experiment 1: Paper facing the jar Initial temperature of the jar: C Initial temperature of the paper: C Table 3A. Highest temperature on the paper over time Table 3B. Highest temperatures on the paper at different distances from the jar Time elapsed Temperature ( C) Distance Temperature ( C) 10 seconds 1 20 seconds 2 40 seconds 3 60 seconds 4 Experiment 2: Paper not facing the jar Initial temperature of the jar: C Initial temperature of the paper: C Table 3C. Highest temperature on the paper over time Table 3D. Highest temperatures on the paper at different distances from the jar Time elapsed Temperature ( C) Distance Temperature ( C) 10 seconds 1 20 seconds 2 30 seconds 3 60 seconds 4 11

12 In the following table, fill IR images that represent different states: (a) Paper facing jar from 1 away after 60 seconds (b) Paper facing jar from 2 away after 60 seconds (c) Paper not facing jar from 1 away after 60 seconds (d) Paper not facing jar from 2 away after 60 seconds Explanation Use the IR images that you and your partner have taken as evidence to check your prediction. Whether your prediction is correct or not, explain your observation based on the concepts of thermal radiation and light absorption (perhaps geometric optics, too, if you have learned it before). Back your explanation with your IR images. 1. What happened to the temperature pattern of a piece of paper when it faced a jar of hot or ice water from the side (Figure 5)? Explain why. 12

13 2. What happened to the temperature pattern of the paper when it was further away from the hot or ice water jar? Explain why. 3. What happened to the temperature pattern of the paper when it did not face the jar (Figure 6)? Explain why. Optional Experiment Repeat the experiment with a jar of a different temperature. If you have used a jar of hot water, try a jar of ice water this time, or vice versa. Questions Based on what you have learned from this activity, answer the following questions: 1. Suppose you put a hot water jar at 100 C on the left side of a piece of paper and an ice water jar at 0 C on the right side (Figure 7). The distances from the jar to the paper are equal and the paper faces both jars. What will the thermal pattern on the paper look like? Explain your answer. Figure 7 2. Describe how a house gains and loses energy through radiative heat transfer from its windows in the day and at night. 13

14 4. Natural Convection Activity: Track Invisible Flow! Natural convection is the flow of thermal energy along with fluid motion that occurs without any external force. Any temperature difference in a fluid on the Earth will cause natural convection and result in redistribution of thermal energy. Materials and Tools Make sure that you have the following lab supplies: An IR camera A few pieces of paper A closed jar of hot water (> 80 C) A closed jar of ice water (< 5 C) Prediction Before you do anything, answer the following questions: Figure 8 1. What will happen to the temperature pattern of a piece of paper when you hang it above a hot water jar in the vertical (Figure 8) and horizontal (Figure 9) directions? 2. What will happen to the temperature pattern of a piece of paper when you hang it above a cold water jar in the vertical and horizontal directions? Figure 9 14

15 Observation Follow these steps to conduct the experiment and observe the convective heat flow that naturally occurs in the air through the IR camera: 1. Put a jar of hot water on a table where there is no other hot or cold objects. 2. Have your partner steadily hold the top edge of a piece of dry paper and carefully place it above the jar in the vertical direction (Figure 8). Make sure that the paper is close to the top of the jar but does not touch it. 3. Ask your partner to keep the paper in that position for at least 30 seconds and observe it through the IR camera. Make sure that the hot water jar does not show up in the IR view. Take an IR image every 10 seconds. 4. Get another piece of paper and hold it in the horizontal position above the jar (Figure 9). Repeat the observation. You and your partner should switch roles whenever repeating an observation or redoing an experiment so both of you get a chance to take actions. 5. Repeat step 1 to 4 with a jar of ice water. In the following table, fill IR images that represent different states: (a) Vertical paper above the hot jar after 30 seconds (b) Horizontal paper above the hot jar after 30 seconds (c) Vertical paper above the cold jar after 30 seconds (d) Horizontal paper above the cold jar after 30 seconds 15

17 5. Forced Convection Activity: Blow Heat Away! Unlike natural convection, forced convection is the flow of thermal energy along with fluid motion driven by an external force such as wind. Materials and Tools Make sure that you have the following lab supplies: An IR camera A few pieces of paper A few binder clips A closed jar of hot water A closed jar of ice water A hand-held fan Prediction Figure 10 Before you do anything, answer the following questions: 1. What will happen to the temperature pattern of a piece of paper next to a hot water jar when wind is blowing towards them (Figure 10)? 2. What will happen to the temperature pattern of a piece of paper next to an ice water jar when wind is blowing towards them (Figure 10)? 17

18 Observation Follow these steps to conduct the experiment and observe forced convection caused by blowing air through the IR camera: 1. Put a jar of hot water on a table where there is no other hot or cold objects. 2. Attach one or two binder clips to a piece of dry paper so that it stands on the table. 3. Place the paper about 1 away from the jar. Make sure that the paper does not touch or face the jar (Figure 10). 4. Keep the paper in that position for at least 30 seconds while you use the hand-held fan to blow air towards the jar. Observe the paper through the IR camera. Make sure that the hot water jar does not show up in the IR view. Take an IR image every 10 seconds. 5. Repeat the experiment with the ice water jar. You and your partner should switch roles whenever repeating an observation or redoing an experiment so both of you get a chance to take actions. In the following table, fill the IR images that represent different states: (a) Paper next to the hot jar before fan blows (b) Paper next to the hot jar after fan blows for 30 seconds (c) Paper next to the cold jar before fan blows (d) Paper next to the cold jar after fan blows for 30 seconds 18

19 Explanation Use the IR images that you and your partner have taken as evidence to check your prediction. Whether your prediction is correct or not, explain your observation based on the concepts of forced convection, fluid flow, and thermal conduction (between air and the paper and between air and the jar). Back your explanation with your IR images. 1. What happened to the temperature pattern of a piece of paper next to a hot water jar when wind was blowing towards them? 2. What happened to the temperature pattern of a piece of paper next to an ice water jar when wind was blowing towards them? Questions Based on what you have learned from this activity, answer the following questions: 1. What can you do to increase the heat transfer from the hot water jar to the paper through forced convection? List all possible methods and explain them. 2. Why do people turn on the ceiling fan in a heated room in the winter when there is no need to cool? Explain your answer. 19

20 6. Latent Heat Activity: Heat Out of Thin Air? In the previous activities, you have seen how thermal energy can transfer from a hot object to a cold one through conduction, radiation, convection, or a combination of them. In order for heat to transfer, you had to create a temperature difference using a hot or cold object. But there are some cases in which the transfer of thermal energy can take place without using a hot or cold source. In this activity, you will discover this kind of phenomena through a very simple experiment. Materials and Tools Make sure that you have the following lab supplies: Figure 11 An IR camera A few pieces of dry paper A few plastic or paper cups Tap water in an open cup (80% filled) prepared the day before in the classroom Prediction Before you do anything, answer the following questions: 1. If you leave some tap water in an open cup in the classroom for a night and check its temperature the next day, what will you find? If the temperature is different from the room temperature, what do you think has caused it? 2. If you cover the cup with a piece of dry paper and observe its temperature change for a few minutes, what will you find? If the temperature changes, what do you think has caused it? 20

21 Observation Follow these steps to conduct the experiment and observe the changes of temperature patterns of the subjects through the IR camera: 1. Put the cup of tap water on a table where there is no hot or cold objects around. 2. Observe the cup with the IR camera, take an IR image of it, and record its temperature using the crosshair cursor. 3. Place a piece of dry paper on the table, take an IR image of it, and record its temperature. 4. Cover half of the cup with a piece of dry paper as shown in Figure 11. Make sure that the paper does not get wet. Even you accidentally wet the paper with a water droplet, just use another piece of dry paper. 5. Keep the paper in that position for at least 60 seconds and observe it through the IR camera from the top position. Take an IR image and record the temperature of the paper every 10 seconds. In the following table, fill the IR images that represent different states: (a) An open cup of water (b) A piece of dry paper (c) An IR image of the paper and the cup taken from the top position, immediately after the cup is half-covered by a piece of dry paper (d) An IR image of the paper and the cup taken from the top position, seconds after the cup is half-covered by a piece of dry paper 21

22 Explanation Use the IR images that you and your partner have taken as evidence to check your prediction. Whether your prediction is correct or not, explain your observation based on the concepts of phase change, in particular evaporation and condensation of water. Back your explanation with your IR images. 1. What do you think has caused the temperature difference between an open cup of water and the surrounding environment? 2. What do you think has caused the temperature change of the paper above the cup of water shortly after it was placed above the cup? Questions Based on what you have learned from this activity, answer the following questions: 22

23 1. Someone in the lab needs a cup of water that is exactly at the same temperature as the room temperature. What can you do to help? Explain your idea. 2. If you remove the paper on top of the cup after it is placed there for a while and then observe the paper using the IR camera, what would you see? Explain your answer. 3. If you keep observing the paper after it is placed above the cup for a long time (say, more than 10 minutes), what would you see about the paper through the IR camera? 23
