Analysis The first table is all about the inverse square law. In this part, we were asked to the find the experimental value of the distance r 2 varying the transmittance value and the distance r 1 . We observed that as the value for transmittance decreases, r 2 also decreases. In this part of the experiment, we were also asked to compare the actual and the experimental value of r 2 . Based on the percent error calculated, we got a small percent error which means the experimental values we had measured are closer to the calculated value. The second part of the experiment is all about polarization. We had observed that when we decrease the transmittance value, the angle measured decreases. When we set the transmittance value to 1oo and we observed it at 0 degrees, the light that would be observed from I 1 and I 2 equal. When we observed it again at 90 degrees, we noticed that I 1 is darker than I 2 . Our observation as the polarizers are rotated is that I 1 becomes darker and darker when we increase the angle from 0 and 90 degrees. We also got small percent errors
