Abstract

[Abstract]: An experiment is described to expose students in a ‘hands-on’ manner to the physics of instrumentation, measurement, electromagnetic radiation and in particular UV radiation. The students will have no difficulty in setting up the apparatus themselves and they will obtain reliable results within a normal school practical period. Additionally, the students will undertake a scientific experiment relevant to everyday life.
