Northern India - Chulas
In this Planet Science resource, students learn about the use of traditional wood stoves, chulas, which are used by the poor in India and lead to health and environmental problems.
Students are asked to use scientific knowledge to assess the design of a new chula, discuss the difference between complete and incomplete combustion and plot graphs to investigate how efficient the chulas are in heating water.
HEALTH and SAFETY
Any use of a resource that includes a practical activity must include a risk assessment. Please note that collections may contain ARCHIVE resources, which were developed at a much earlier date. Since that time there have been significant changes in the rules and guidance affecting laboratory practical work. Further information is provided in our Health and Safety guidance.
