Radiometer Crookes-Light Energy into Mechanical Energy

Product Details

 

Invented by William Crooke in the 1860's, the radiometer is a fun and educational science toy. It demonstrates the conversion of light energy into mechanical energy. The vanes in the evacuated glass bulb are dark and light in color. The dark vanes absorb the rays and the light vanes reflect the rays. It is facinating to hold it in the sun or to a light bulb and see it spin. This is a great way to study light energy into mechanical energy. The stronger the light, the faster it spins. It measures 5 by 3 and is new in the box.

This solar-powered engine patented in 1878 demonstrates how light is converted into motion. Place it in sunlight or near incandescent light and the vanes will spin up to 3000 RPM. Educational information included. " "
