The Crookes Radiometer, also known as a “light mill”, consists of a partly evacuated glass bulb, inside of which a set of vanes is suspended on a vertical axle. One side of the vanes is black, the other silver coloured. When exposed to bright light, the vanes start rotating about the axle.
The Goethe Barometer consists of a partly filled glass sphere with stand that has a spout attached to its bottom. The spout is open at the top, which allows the atmospheric pressure to change the level of the liquid inside.
The principle of this thermometer was discovered by Galileo Galilei: Suspended in the liquid inside the cylinder are a number of weights which are attached to sealed glass bulbs.
If you hold the bottom glass bulb of the hand boiler in your hand, something astonishing happens: The blue fluid inside the bulb starts to rise through the spiral into the top bulb. When nearly all of the liquid is in the top bulb it also starts to bubble, as if it would be boiling
