RANGE OF EXPERIMENTS TO BE CARRIED OUT:
- To determine the thermal conductivity of the Insulating Material.
- The experiments can be conducted at various values of input & calculation can be made accordingly.
- To plot Heat flux Vs thermal conductivity of Insulating Powder.
TECHNICAL DESCRIPTION :
The apparatus consists of two thin walls concentric copper spheres. The inner sphere houses the heating coil, the insulating powder (Asbestos Powder, as lagging material) is packed between two shells. The power supplied to the heating coil is by using a dimmer stat & is measured by Voltmeter & Ammeter.
Copper constant thermocouples are used to measure the temperatures, thermocouples 1 to 4 are embedded on inner sphere and thermocouples 5 to 10 , are embedded on the outer shell .
