Solar panel Motor Fan blade Protractor Light source
Absorb Convert Electrical energy Kinetic energy ( energy of motion) Photovoltaic cell (solar panel) Radiant energy
2. Place the solar panel in a strong light source.3. Use a protractor to determine the best angle for the solar panel that will generate the maximum amount of power.4. Investigate how changing the amount of light and or angle of the solar panel affect the amount of power created.
Slant Power 0 full power 10 full power 20 full power 30 full power 40 full power 50 full power 60 full power 70 full power 80 full power 90 to 180 no power
Result 2 Slant Power0 no power 10 no power 20 no power 30 no power 40 no power 50 no power 60 no power 70 to 180 full power
My hypothesis was wrong 180 degrees had no power.
When you changed the angle of thepanel toward the light, you alsochanged how much electricity wasproduced. More electricity is producedif the light is shining directly on thePV cells, because more radiant energyis striking the cells.
If I were going to do this experiment again, I would try to learn how to make the solar panel myself, and how to actually power something at my house.
