Albedo Effect Lab Activity Experiment A: Colour Hypothesis The piece of white paper will have the highest albedo because it is most capable of reflecting light and does not absorb as much heat as a piece of paper of a darker colour such as black. Variables Manipulated: Different colours of paper Responding: Albedo values of each piece of paper Controlled: Distance between light sensor and each piece of paper, source of light, and the surface the experiment was conducted on Observations Experiment A: Surface Hypothesis The glass surface will have the lowest albedo because light can go straight through it, and it is unable to reflect light. Variables Manipulated: Different surfaces Responding: Albedo values of different surfaces Controlled: Source of light, distance between light sensor and each surface, amount of light

each surface is exposed to Observations O Conclusion and Evaluation Through the use of a CBL 2 Interface and a light sensor, we found the reflectivity of various colours and surfaces, which was used to be compared with that of a piece of aluminum foil.

    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.
