Miller-Urey "second" experiment


Ned Shaw, Indiana University

The apparatus used for Miller's "second," initially unpublished experiment. Boiled water (1) creates airflow, driving steam and gases through a spark (2). A tapering of the glass apparatus (inlay) creates a spigot effect, increasing air flow. A cooling condenser (3) turns some steam back into liquid water, which drips down into the trap (4), where chemical products also settle.2008Ned Shaw, Indiana UniversityMiller-Urey "second" experiment
