why solar ovens
Why Solar Ovens
  • Go Green
  • Nature Conservancy: Haiti
  • Pizza Box
your mission
Your Mission
  • To design a solar oven that will create the most thermal energy in 45 minutes using common supplies (cardboard boxes (shoe box, pizza box, larger box, etc.) tin foil, plastic wrap, newspaper, etc.)
  • You must work in groups of 3 or 2 (need team name)
  • You will calculate volume of oven (minimum of 1,000cm3, joules of energy converted, and power of oven
  • You can choose to bring ingredients from the provided recipes (only) to make something for your group/self
provided items
Provided Items
  • Tin foil (about 4 sheets (8.5x11))
  • Plastic wrap (about 4 sheets of 8.5x11)
  • 2 sheets black paper (which I would like back at the end)
  • Glue, staples, tape (not very strong)
items your team must provide
Items Your Team Must Provide
  • The container (be creative!)
  • Extra tin foil (if needed)
  • Extra plastic wrap (if needed)
  • Insulation (if needed)
  • Substitutes for any of the above materials (for example: if you want plexi-glass or something more heavy duty then plastic wrap)
  • Any pre-cooked food items (basically we are only melting or re-heating foods for safety reasons, must come packaged)
  • Please use caution when cutting cardboard, especially with sharp scissors or exacto knives
  • Please only bring food that is pre-cooked and packaged

heating systems
Heating Systems
  • Heating systems vary depending on climate
  • Before only stoves/fires used to heat: but is a slow process
forced air systems
Forced Air Systems
  • Furnace warms air, then spreads air using ducts and vents
  • Cool air is

returned to be

heated again

  • Most common

in US

radiator systems
Radiator Systems
  • Closed metal container with hot water or steam
  • Through conduction, thermal energy passed to the surrounding air
electric heating systems
Electric Heating Systems
  • Electric coils in floors heat surrounding air

by conduction,

then convection

currents heats the

rest of the room

solar heating
Solar Heating
  • Buildings use the sun’s radiation in 2 ways
    • Passive: materials easily absorb radiation and heat naturally
    • Active solar: solar cells
passive solar heating
Passive Solar Heating
  • Need lots of south facing windows
active solar heating
Active Solar Heating
  • Uses solar collectors, photovoltaic (PV) cells, or solar panels to create electricity or warm water to radiate heat
  • The study of how thermal energy, heat, and work are related
  • Heat and work increase TE
  • Heat can only move from warm to cold, unless work is done (think about rubbing your hands together)
converting heat to work
Converting Heat to Work
  • Heat engine: converts thermal energy to mechanical energy
    • ME=____+_____
  • Internal Combustion Engines: fuel is burned inside cylinders and turn heat to work
    • Converts only 25% of heat to mechanical energy- 75% of heat is lost (that’s why coolant is needed!)
heat movers
Heat Movers
  • Heat movers move TE from one location to another at a different temp
heat mover refrigerators
Heat Mover: Refrigerators
  • Does work so that heat can move from inside refrigerators to outside
  • Needs coolant: evaporates at a low temperature
  • Liquid coolant->gas (cool)->pumped to coils in fridge and TE goes from warm to cold->warm gas compressed doing work-> becomes warmer then outside air and heat flows to outside air, process starts all over again.
air conditioners and heat pumps
Air Conditioners and Heat Pumps
  • Air conditioners: Work like refrigerators, just does the opposite
  • Heat pump: can cool and warm air
human coolant
Human Coolant
  • As sweat evaporates absorbs TE, taking heat away from your body
