Students will conduct an experiment to find out how well different wires radiate heat when voltage is applied across the wire. Students will use the results of their experiments to consider how the gauge of the wire and the type of wire affect the amount of heat radiated. Then, students will use what they learned from the experiment to address a practical problem solving situation. The activity portion is done in small groups. The follow-up questions are completed individually by each student working alone.
