The thermal camera shows a live-feed thermogram, a picture of the heat (thermal energy) radiating off of objects in the camera’s view. Everything (even an ice cube) at temperatures above absolute zero radiates energy all of the time, but we usually can’t see it! That’s because the energy is in the infrared region instead of the visible light region. The thermal-imaging camera can detect infrared radiation, and the computer turns the data from the camera’s detector into an image in colors we can see.
So what does the thermogram show?
What colors show the hottest energy and what colors show the coolest?
What part of your head is the hottest? Coldest?
What do the objects on the table look like in front of the camera?
Can you change the temperature of any of the objects?
