So-called hydro-electric power stations have large water
reservoirs up high that store water prior to use. The water is
pumped up to them from coal-burning power stations or nuclear power
stations etc. using electric energy. Waste products such as
CO2 gas or radioactive material are hereby generated.
This experiment shows that this could be a possible application for
A pump that is driven by electric energy supplied by a solar
battery is used in this experiment. The effect of the light
intensity on the pump performance is to be examined.
- Experiment is part of a complete solution set with a total of 26 experiments for Renewable Energy solar cells, wind power, water power
- Safe experimentation: the lamp is protected against touch, the housing is well ventilated with the aid of holes and is only slightly heated
- The power supply used is versatile and is particularly suitable for pupil tests for all ages
How high can water be pumped by light?
