AimMaterialsMethodResultsDiscussionConclusionThe luxmeter and spectrometer were both connected to a laptop, where SPARKvue was used to analyse data.The brightness setting of the laptop was set to a minimum, and the screen was bent down and turned away from the apparatus so that it didnt interfere with results.The lights were turned off.The 10 W light bulb was turned on for one minute, and the following data was recorded:Light intensity over timeLight intensity of various wavelengths of the electromagnetic spectrumPART AAimMaterialsMethodResultsDiscussionConclusionPART A

AimMaterialsMethodResultsDiscussionConclusionSome preliminary trials were performed without the cylindrical tube first. The rest of the method was identical. The sensors were each held in place using retort stands and clamps.

AimMaterialsMethodResultsDiscussionConclusionThere was a lot of variation in our results, because it was difficult to position the luxmeter at the same angle each time, using just the retort stands. This resulted in a large standard deviation.

AimMaterialsMethodResultsDiscussionConclusionThe bulb(s) and the luxmeter were then fixed in place inside the tube, in order to eliminate this problem.

AimMaterialsMethodResultsDiscussionConclusionPART CThe following is a suggested method for Part C.

Set up an external thermometer so that it is 1 cm away from a 5 W light bulb, and is pointing at the bulbs filament. Use the same circuit outlined previously. The light bulb should be 5 W at 6 V.

AimMaterialsMethodResultsDiscussionConclusionPART CThe following is a suggested method for Part C.

Gradually decrease the resistance of the rheostat, hence increasing the voltage supplied to the light bulb, until the fuse blows. Record the temperature at which the fuse blows.Set up two identical 5 W bulbs, each with different voltages supplied to them. Leave these on continuously for 72 hours.After the 72 hours have elapsed, measure the temperature of the filament of each globe to observe which globe is closest to the temperature at which the fuse blew in Step 2.

Steps 3 and 4 could be repeated to get a wide range of voltages, and hence see how each voltage affects the lifetime of the bulb.

AimMaterialsMethodResultsDiscussionConclusionA 10 W light bulb shines brighter than two 5 W light bulbs.

As the voltage supplied to a light bulb decreases, the intensity of the light it produces also decreases. AimMaterialsMethodResultsDiscussionConclusionReferences
