heat conduction through a window

Get two temperature sensors to measure the temperature inside and outside a window. You may find that over a long period of time it is best to record your data remotely. This means that...

heat conduction

You can use a temperature sensor to study the conduction of heat through materials. Two temperature sensors allow you to compare different materials at the same time. In this example, you heat strips of...
