5 7 amazing aerogel questions
5.7 Amazing AerogelQuestions

(Level 4)

  • Look at the diagram at the top of page 83 of insulation round a pipe. Why would testing the two materials as shown in the diagram not be a fair test?
  • Jasmine says that you could use a sheet of Aerogel between sheets of glass in oven doors to make them safer. Do you think she is right? Explain your answer.
  • Aerogel is a much better insulator than fibreglass. Suggest a reason why we still use fibreglass as insulation in houses instead of using Aerogel.

  • When the Stardust spacecraft heats up as it enters the Earth’s atmosphere, the dust in the Aerogel that it carries does not heat up. Explain why. (Hint: think about what Aerogel is made from.)
