Julia Bielaski 0163140 Lab Report #1 PH 232
Objective : This lab was designed to analyze the wave nature of light. The first part of the experiment was used to find d (the grating spacing) since the wavelength was known. We recorded four diffracted images from the sodium lamp, meaning the order number was four. The second component of the lab used the grating spacing from part one to find the wavelengths of each color for every order visible. A spectrum tube replaced the sodium lamp and we used the colors yellow, orange,
