In this experiment, our group was to investigate the principles of governing light of both refraction and reflection as well as investigate the dispersion of white light into elementary components as they relate to the colors of the objects. We used Snells law (n1 sin theta 1 = n2 sin theta 2) along with the law of reflection (I=R) to study and investigate these principles. Data: We were given a light source and instructions on how to set the lab up properly. We used the light source, a slit mask and a slit plate for the first part of the experiment. This gave us our needed data without too many mistakes or errors made. We then moved on the second part of the experiment where we removed the mirror and used instead a half circle prism. This allowed us to study the effect of refraction from air to glass and back to air.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
