The Smart Wireless Thermocouple Sensor can be used to investigate a number of scientific experiments such as:

  • Discovering how the temperature inside a Bunsen flame varies.
  • Comparing the temperature at which different candles burn (test out variables and whether they affect temperature e.g. colour, diameter of candle, scented vs. unscented)
  • Which part of a candle flame is hottest?
  • Investigating whether the variety of wax used to make a candle affects the rate of combustion and luminosity
  • Discovering at what temperature popcorn pops – evaluating poppers and varieties of popping corn
  • Using melting point to Identify a solid e.g. bismuth, aluminium, zinc, tin, lead, etc. The solids known melting point should be less than 1,200  ̊C.
  • Temperature of dry ice or liquid air
  • Estimation of absolute zero
  • Any temperature investigation that requires high accuracy over the entire range
  • The K-Type thermocouple is not suitable for rapid temperature change work
