Tungsten is one of the densest natural elements, and this heavy metal sphere is a beautiful centerpiece for any metal lover’s collection. Machined from aerospace grade tungsten, this is the ultimate weighty addition to your desk at work or side table at home.
Tungsten is a silvery white metal with a very high melting point and extremely high density of 19.3 grams per cubic centimeter. It has an extremely wide range of uses, including filaments in light bulbs and cathode ray tubes, and it is often used as radiation shielding. Tungsten is also extremely useful in the automotive industry, where it is commonly used as ballast and counterweights to optimize vehicle weight and performance.
A spherical tungsten piece of radius 1.0 cm is suspended within an evacuated enclosure maintained at 300 K. The temperature of the sphere is determined by its emissivity and Stefan-Boltzmann’s constant, assuming no heat conduction along supports. Find the power required to maintain the sphere’s temperature.
Comprehend the extreme density of black holes with this fascinating model, crafted from one of the universe’s densest elements: tungsten. Engineered to match the size of the Schwarzschild radius of Earth, this unique model is perfect for teachers and professors presenting their research on black hole theory, as well as for astronomy enthusiasts building out their space models.
