Evacuated Tube Collector Heating and Cooling Rates Lab – Solar Energy Lab

Silicon Solar’s Solar Energy Labs are a great resource for teachers to utilize while teaching their students about solar energy.  With labs that focus on both solar thermal and solar electric power, you will be able to give your students a great hands on experience with solar energy.

PROBLEM: Can you determine the heating and cooling rates of a water-filled evacuated tube solar collector?

MATERIALS: evacuated tube, water, computer, logger pro software, vernier thermocouple, cork stopper, radiation lamp with 150W bulb, meter stick, ring stands and clamps, small piece of styrofoam. (Materials Not Included, we recommend using our Demo Collector listed below)

INTRODUCTION: This lab follows closely the procedures done in a standard earth science lab on heating and cooling rates. We will be replacing the standard cups with an evacuated tube collector used in solar water heating units. This tube is constructed with two layers of borosilicate glass and an insulating vacuum layer in between. We will be looking to discover any major differences in how the water heats and cools in the tube compared to what you remember from the standard cups.
