Thermocouples are one of the most common temperature sensors. They can be used to measure temperatures between -200 and 1400 degrees Celsius. If you have never had the opportunity to do an experiment using a Vernier Thermocouple, here are three activities to try: Flame Mapping, Bending Glass, and Heating Curve for Ethanol. This might be just what you need to heat things up this fall.
Brian Czapor and some of his fellow students from the University of Akron participated in the SAE (Society of Automotive Engineers) Aero Design® Competition. In order to improve their design, they used the Vernier LabPro and our 3-Axis Accelerometer to give them flight data.
