Vernier Thermal Analysis® Plus for FLIR ONE

Student teams gather temperature data with a LabQuest 2 and share their results with the class

Study the Unseen with Thermal Analysis Plus

Offer your students a fun and engaging way to study thermal energy. With our Thermal Analysis app, students can easily observe temperature changes on the skin, illustrate convection, track heating due to friction, compare heat conduction in different materials, analyze the transparency of materials in infrared vs. visible light, and much more.

The Vernier Thermal Analysis Plus app makes it possible to analyze temperatures of up to four spots or regions and collect temperature data as a function of time. Examine the in-app graph, select different points or regions to examine, collect time-lapse videos for longer experiments, or export data to Graphical Analysis GW or Logger Pro for further analysis.

Thermal Analysis Plus requires a FLIR ONE Thermal Camera.

Video

Follow along as our Director of Physics, Fran Poodry, walks through the functions of our free Thermal Analysis app using the second generation FLIR ONE camera (discontinued). You’ll learn how to analyze the absorption of radiant energy, evaluate the transmission and reflection of infrared light, and determine respiration rate. These functions are also available on our paid app, Thermal Analysis Plus, which is compatible with the 3rd generation FLIR ONE and FLIR ONE Pro cameras.

Activities

The Thermal Analysis app and FLIR ONE camera are used to measure respiration rate by tracking the the temperature of air entering and exiting the nose.

Biology

  • Determine respiration rate by examining the temperature of the air exiting the nostrils.
  • Explore the effect of vascularity on skin temperature recovery after brief exposure to ice.
  • Compare reptile skin temperatures under a heating lamp and in the shade.
  • Compare plant leaves from different types of plants, such as succulents, herbaceous, and woody plants, in sunlight and different colors of light.

Additional Resources

Since 2010, Dr. Charles Xie of Concord Consortium has been pioneering the applications of IR imaging in chemistry and biology. Read his independent research articles on advanced IR thermography as an important method of chemical imaging:

Almost all chemical processes release or absorb heat. The heat flow in a chemical system reflects the process it is undergoing. By showing the temperature distribution dynamically, infrared (IR) imaging provides a salient visualization of the process.

Features

  • Mark up to four locations or regions on the image to determine the minimum, maximum, or average temperature.
  • Graph live temperature data during an experiment.
  • Capture temperature data for everything within a video frame allowing you to analyze any object at any time and create additional temperature vs. time graphs.
  • Export thermal image videos and data to Logger Pro software for further analysis or export data into our Graphical Analysis 4 app.
  • Use the time-lapse video feature to record data for long collection times without filling up the storage on your iPhone® or iPad®.

Review

“The Thermal camera, in conjunction with the Thermal Analysis app, can do much more than simply detect heat. Students will also be able to record and graph live temperature data from up to four locations on an image. This will allow them to compare the temperature data between different locations during an experiment. Furthermore, each picture taken with this device will also simultaneously take a standard picture, providing greater detail of the image.”
