Orienting a Photovoltaic Cell

By mounting a light bulb on a stand and a PV cell on another, physics apprentices experiment with the angle of incidence. Their goal is to determine the optimum angle for collecting solar energy. The use of a scientific calculator is required for trigonometric calculations. Preparation provided for you by this lesson plan is complete; even a neat and thought-provoking student lab sheet is included. This is part of a series of outstanding lessons on solar energy.
