Convection in Liquids


Convection in Liquids, C3-2900.00, £9.30

Convection App.Very simple apparatus for clearly demonstrating that hot liquid rises.

The apparatus is filled with water and a candle, which is a nice gentle heat source, is placed under one limb. A few drops of dye are then added to the water. As the hot water above the candle rises it pushes the dye round the apparatus.

This simple and effective apparatus helps to promote a hands-on approach to learning.

The photographs below show that the water above the lit candle is rising and forcing the dye round the apparatus.
