Modern Physics Lab: Black-Body Radiation: Supplementary Notes Rex Tayloe Department of Physics, Indiana University 2/18/03 Misc. Hints: - Read Preston and Dietz, Exp. 8, for more info (and help with the tasks) on this experiment. - Use plastic spectrometer to get a feel for spectrum of Na-D. - Reasonable PMT voltages: 300-500 V. - Monochrometer is sensitive to vibration! - PMT current is read via a circuit inside the PMT housing which converts to a voltage signal (i.e. multimeter should be reading voltage). - PMT is a Hamamatsu R3896.

Unformatted text preview: - Allow lamps to warm up before doing measurements. Task Notes:- Task 4: Find the Na-D doublet with a wide slit setting (~50 μ m), determine the calibration (and error) with and narrow slit setting (~10 μ m). - Task 6: The idea here is that the temperature of the tungsten filament is higher than the reading from the pyrometer due to the emissivity. Task 7: Measure the filament temperature, current, and voltage for 5-6 current settings of the bulb. Note that the current and voltage for the bulb are AC measurements. 1...

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
