When the lamp is switched on and the temperature is measured of the metal plates, it can be studied which one absorbs heat quicker and more than the other. After the lamp is turned off, we can also study which losses heat quicker. Lamp operates on 12VDC. Base Size 7.75" x 7.75" x 0.5". Metal plates are 3.75" in dia. Total height of unit 5.5".
