Emitting radiation
« on: August 25, 2009, 00:15:22 am »
Question:   Though a hot iron emits radiations, it is not visible to us. Why?

Answer:    It emits infra-red radiations which are invisible to the eyes.

Check out: Lavoisier. He made hydrogen with an hot iron. Now you know why.
He used the infrared emittion from the iron. That infrared broke down the water into hydrogen and oxygen.
Hmmmm, who used infrared as well?

Because the Geet must be made of a ferro metal, like iron or steel, it is mighty interesting
what kind of radiation is coming of the exhaust when its hot.

http://www.the-orb.net/encyclop/culture/scitech/iron_steel.html

In the exhaust there are temperatures of between 500 and 800 Celcius or 1292 Fahrenheit.
At that temperature, people talk about having a RED hot pipe. When hotter, it is called WHITE hot.

So, we can assume that a Geet works on temperatures around the 700 degrees celcius or 1292 degrees fahrenheit and that it uses the redhot radiation.
Red hot = infrared range

Infrared (IR) light is part of the electromagnetic wave spectrum that borders the lowest frequency/longest wavelength among those that make up visible light. Just like all members of the electromagnetic wave spectrum, the IR frequencies overlap with its adjacent members. However, most of IR is between 750 nm and 1,000,000 nm.

Infrared radiation is what is emitted by a warm or hot body and is where the term 'red hot' was derived from.

The main frequency (or color) of the emitted radiation increases as the temperature increases. For example, a red hot object radiates most in the long wavelengths of the visible band, which is why it appears red. If it heats up further, the main frequency shifts to the middle of the visible band, and the spread of frequencies mentioned in the first point make it appear white. We then say the object is white hot. This is Wien's displacement law. In the diagram the peak value for each curve moves to the left as the temperature increases.

Crazy as it sounds Stevie, If you want to harness a Small portion of Infrared radiation Go Buy you A Infrared Detector, Not Transmitter. Hook this To an amplifier circuit with a buzzer, Or light. Buy you a pack of cigarettes and place one near the detector, Take a puff. You will be amazed at the infrared radiation emitted from this.

Thats not such a bad idea.
What if we can make a measurement tool with a circuit like that?

If I am correct, and i do think i am a normal Camera can Capture a infrared Beam from your tv remote control. It does seem like I have captured one with a camera before, From the best of my memory, it looked like a laser beam in the photo.

Here is the absorbtion graph of water.....
Anybody see similairitys with the range of red hot iron?
