The radiometer is also known as a light mill, solar power station or the Crookes’ radiometer. It was invented by the chemist and physicisit Sir William Crookes. Heat rays from the sun or a bulb warm the dark side of the wings – and therefore the air around it – more than on the light side. The difference in pressure causes the turning motion of the winged wheel.
