TC 06.1 – Heat Conduction in Gases and Liquids

One of the most commonly available sytems to determine thermic conductivity for liquids and gas is the use of a cylinder with two adjacent, isothermal cylinders, separated by a small ring where the fluid under study is enclosed.

Training unit TC 06.1 simulates the same system, providing an opportunity for students to understand how thermal conductivity takes place whereas experimenting hands-on with the values for different samples of liquid and gas.

The tests allow to work out k thermic conductivity for samples of water, alcohol, oil, air, oxygen or carbon dioxide.
