Unformatted text preview: magnification (m) by using the formula: m=L’/L. and comparing that with the theoretical value of M from the formula: |M|=I/o. o(mm) I(mm) L L' Flens 100 183 10 28 48 m M 2.8 1.83 V-4) For this section, we projected a mirror image on a target, ensuring that the size of the object matches that of the object itself. We calculated the focal length of the curved mirror using the formula: f=I/2, and compared it with the given focal length (F). We then determined our percentage error. F(mm) I(mm) f(mm) %Err 25 60 30 20 V-5) In this part of the lab, we plotted the I/I o vs. φ against Malus’s law, I/I o =cos 2 φ, vs. φ and compared the two graphs. We used an incandescent source and a Polaroid on a component carrier as a source of polarized light and set the polarizer angle (φ) to different angles in order to get measurements for I(φ)....
