The Light Sensor approximates the human eye in spectral response. Use it for inverse square law experiments or for studying polarizers, reflectivity, or solar energy.

ORDER CODE: LS-BTA Categories ,

The Light Sensor can be used for measurements of light intensity in a variety of situations.

  • Perform inverse square light intensity experiments using a point source of light
  • Conduct polarized filter studies
  • Demonstrate the flicker of fluorescent lamps and other lamps
  • Carry out solar energy studies
  • Perform reflectivity studies
  • Study light intensity in various parts of a house or school
  • Use it as part of a study of plant growth to measure light intensity

 

WARNING: This product can expose you to chemicals, including antimony, which are known to the State of California to cause cancer. For more information, see www.P65Warnings.ca.gov
