An attempt to capture Rayleigh Bernard Convection Cells using mica powder, vegetable oil, and a hot plate. Initial results were not what we expected — potentially due to the type of oil we used.

    Love how you tried to capture the motion in the flow. I think some more stark contrast and brighter highlights would’ve helped to achieve this.

    After our discussion in class, I will be curious to know if it is just the oil that would better capture the cells you were trying to capture.
