The other day we spent in the lab putting fire to small pieces of wood with different densities. What we basically did was to measure and weigh the samples before they where put in the cone calorimeter. Before we exposed the samples to heat the dimensions of the samples and their weight put in to a program on the computer next to the cone calorimeter, the computer computed (haha) a lot of results for us that then where used to do a bunch of calculations.
Since we are gonna write a report about this and they wanted pictures in the report I took my camera with me to get proper pictures and could also show them to you guys. Hope you like the pictures from a "normal" day at school.
The first sample had just ignited
And this is directly after the second sample had ignited
And this is all that is left from the first sample! Just a piece of coal more or less.
