Stephen Harper Tuesday, October 11, 2005 Prelab questions: Reflection, refraction and polarization. 1. The angle of refraction will be measured more than once in this experiment. 2. The method that gives the least uncertainty will be the most precise. The method that is closest to the expected value will be the most accurate. 3. Brewster’s angle occurs when the reflected beam is entirely polarized, meaning

Unformatted text preview: the refracted and reflected beams are perpendicular. 4. The laser is directed through a cylindrical lens in order to disperse the beam. The laser used is not wide enough for our purposes in this experiment. 5. The law of refraction is generally know as Snells law....
