Additional Info

  • ID Code: K6-22
  • Purpose: Demonstrate quantitatively the conversion of electrical energy into heat.
  • Description: This old-style 200-watt immersion heater is used to heat approximately 200 ml of water in a borosilicate beaker. Measure the initial water temperature with a digital thermometer, allow it to heat for a fixed time, then measure the final temperature. A calculation of the energy used should come to within approximately 10% of the predicted result.

    Note that the heater will (obviously) get hot! Do not allow it to burn your hand or the power cord.
