Unformatted text preview: PHYSICS 122- EXPERIMENT NO PHYSICS 124 EXPERIMENT NO. 8 REFLECTION, REFRACTION, LENSE AND OPTICAL INSTRUMENTS Introduction This laboratory is to show that the very simple principles of reflection and refraction can lead to sophisticated ideas about optical instrument. We begin with a ray box that has a slotted mask in front of a light bulb to produce a set of thin beams (or "rays") . The rays lie along a plane surface (a sheet of paper). Your measurements will consist of pencil mark on a piece of paper lying on this surface, indicating the direction of these rays before and after striking a mirror or glass prism. Then you will progress to the study of lenses, which are nothing more than refractor with curved surfaces. Finally you will construct a simple microscope and telescope from two lenses. Part I-Light Wave Refection A. Use the ray box, a mirror, and protractor to verify that Do this for at least three different incident angles....
