Easy Science Project Idea for School – Solar Heater Model
The present era is the era of science and computer. Analytical power, research, and the need for entertainment are also growing in men. The value of time has increased a lot. It is very important for the students to accelerate their learning skills and make them relative to time. Keeping in view this need of students, I started to publish curiosity series. Keeping these points in mind I have published many science projects for school students on this website itself. Here I will be teaching you to make a Solar Heater Model than can cook food by using solar energy. This Science Model can be made with very little money.
Now lets come to the project that I am going to show you step by step. In this article, I will be showing you how to make a Solar Heater Box. Its a very simple Science Project for Kids.
Necessary Materials To Make This Solar Heater Model
- A big and a small carton.
- Cardboard or plywood.
- Adhesive or Quick fix.
- Shining paper.
- Chaff or Sand.
- Black paint
Method: How To Make This Science Model?
Take a big carton and then, open the upper lid of the carton and stick the shining paper on its inner surface. Then fix it slight oblique so that the sunlight may fall over it. Paint the inner surfaces black.
Apply adhesive or quick-fix on the outer base of the small carton and put it exactly in the middle of the big carton. Then fill chaff or sand in the gaps between both cartons. Paint the small carton also black already. Then put the object that is to be heated into small cartons and kept it in a place where the sunlight falls. Just after a short while, the object will get heated.
Reason – How This Solar Heater Box Work?
A blackened box or a box with shining paper gets heated quickly because black color absorbs heat and the shining paper reflects the rays that fall out of the box and radiates them right towards the box. As a result, the temperature of the inner part of the box highly increases and the object kept inside the box gets quickly heated or dries. Besides this, the sand put in the box gets quickly heated too. And, if the object to be heated or dry is kept in a metal plate or any other vessel made of metal, it dries or gets heated quickly too. For all these reasons, a thing kept in such type of box dries or gets heated quickly.
