Explore the Fascinating World of Radiometers

Step into the intriguing world of Radiometers, innovative scientific instruments developed by Sir William Crookes in 1873, designed to illustrate the power of light and solar energy. Housed in delicate glass bulbs, these devices feature reflective vanes that spin under sunlight, providing a captivating display of solar energy's impact. The speed of rotation varies with light intensity, serving as a functional indicator of solar power. Enhance your collection of scientific instruments with a visit to our Galileo Thermometer page for added elegance.

Unraveling How Radiometers Work

The functionality of a Radiometer is as fascinating as its construction is straightforward. Each vane, painted black on one side to absorb light and silver on the other to reflect it, experiences a temperature differential that propels it into motion. This clever design visually demonstrates the conversion of radiant energy, highlighting the subtle yet potent effects of light and heat on movement, even with just the warmth of your hand.
