  1. I need to find 2 chemicals that are safe for school use and that react safely that would be able to reach 100-200c thanks
  2. well it is that at the moment but it could be bigger. 11.43cm is 4.5" and i plan to use that one
  3. well the parabolic mirror i think should be 11.43cm diameter. The attachment has all the info on that you should need except the 15 degrees c should be 11 as that is the yearly average temp
  4. how can i calculate the surface aria of a parabolic mirror
  5. so if the souse of light is the sun it can't be any hotter than that
  6. Is there a sum to work out how hot the point of focusing could get with a parabolic mirror? thanks, matt

    new diagram.bmp The question im going to arks is what type of lenses should i use and what dimensions would it have to be to work efficiently. Also any other improvements i could make would be yourself
  11. k and it would be fully in closed
  12. if i change the liquid would it work more efficiently. and would a normal magnifying glass work to boil water. im going to do my own exsperments as well
  13. hi

    I am matt and im still at school so i came on here for help with my engineering project which uses science

  14. how would i be able to make it more efficient but without doing much changing.
