Safety Warning and Disclaimer Regarding Experiments Listed
The user assumes all risks regarding these
projects. Concentrated sunlight can produce high temperatures
and can damage one's eyes. Suitable gloves should be worn
to protect the experimenter from potential burns. The concentrated
sunlight can ignite combustibles or cause other types of damage.
If this concentrated light energy does not hit the target
collector, because the dish and collector is not properly
aligned with the sun, then a hazard exists beyond the missed
target. Students and instructors should wear protective sunglasses
when viewing the light concentrated by the dish. Under no
circumstances should anyone look directly at the sun or place
ones eyes such that they are at the focal point of the reflector
dish. Other standard safety precautions when utilizing optics
and high power light sources may apply.
