1 EXERCISE #6 LAB revised Sp’11 GEOLOGY 240 MATERIALS NEEDED: Calculator, ruler, colored pencils PART I. REFLECTION AND REFRACTION (LIGHTS, MIRRORS, AND FISH BOWLS) This experiment will demonstrate reflection and refraction using a fish bowl, mirrors, and laser light. Be careful with the laser light! Observe. Using the figure, draw and label the various rays you see. Indicate what part of the set- up (equipment) the ray is reflecting or refracting from (e.g., is the particular ray reflecting off the right/left mirror, or the interface?) FIGURE 1.

2 PART II. DISPERSION OF WAVES (THE GLASS PRISM) 1. After observing light passing through a prism, answer the following: a. Review Fig. 3 of Prelab – note how the angle with respect with the normal changes (due to velocity contrast). The portion of the projector beam entering the prism can be considered a ray. Which way does the ray bend upon entering the prism - toward/away from the normal? (hint – study Figs. 1 and 3 from PreLab). b. Why ? Draw this on the “triangle” on Figure 2b, next page.

    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.
