Have you ever wondered if you can get sunburnt on a cloudy day? Or whether those cheap sunglasses let ultraviolet light through? Investigate these issues and others with the new UVA and UVB Sensors from Vernier. Two different UV Sensors are available-one responds primarily to UVA radiation (approximately 320 to 390 nm) and another responds primarily to UVB radiation (290 to 320 nm).
You can perform the following kinds of experiments:

Compare ultraviolet transmission of various plastics and glasses.

Compare ultraviolet intensity on cloudy and sunny days.

Study the absorption of ultraviolet by sunscreen lotions and clothing.
