With the aid of a solar collector, solar energy can be converted into thermal energy. A major component of the collector is the absorber. It absorbs the radiant energy of the sun and transfers the heat to a heat transfer medium that flows through it. This heat transfer medium carries the heat off the collector. The heat can then either be used directly or it can be stored. The most common application in which solar energy is converted into heat is the hot water generation in households. The aim of this experiment is to demonstrate how water flowing through a solar collector heats up.
