How To: Experiment with temperature using glow sticks

Experiment with temperature using glow sticks

In this video from Dr. Carlson, users are shown how to witness the effects of the relationship between temperature and matter firsthand, using light-sticks. For the experiment, users need 3 beakers (or vessels of the sort,) and 3 light-sticks of the same color, shape, and light. To test the range, each beaker must correspond to one of the following states: room temperature, ice-water, or boiling water. Deposit a stick in each of them and observe for two minutes. Thus, one will see how the atoms slow down in the cold one, dimming the light, while the one in the boiling water will emit more light. The room temperature one will remain the same. Thus, viewers are able to witness said effects in their own home.
