Sorry, that is incorrect, while it is possible to make
a radiometer that turns from reflected photons like a
solar sail is supposed to accelerate due to radiation
pressure of reflected photons, the Crook's radiometer
works because the black side gets warm and the
gas press in the thing is low enough the mean free
path is long enough to allow the molecules to bounce
off the black side with more energy than they had
Wrong, if you would have tried it in the freezer,
it will turn towards the black faces and away from
the white ones in the dark for a little while until the
vanes cool off.
But in light, it turns toward the white faces
due to the black side heating the gas molecules.
All you have to do is LOOK, and PAY
ATTENTION, instead of just assuming, and
that gives you first hand knowledge that will
help more than reading books.
