As a result of the experiment the students should realize that
Iight reflected from plexiglass and glass is partly polarized, and
that the degree of polarization depends upon the angle of
incidence. They should also know that reflection from metal
surfaces does not bring about polarization; to demonstrate this,
metal plates with smooth surfaces, i.e. with good reflection
properties, will be utilized.
- Multifunctional light box - All-in-one: Can be used for geometric optics on the table, colour mixing and on an optical bench
- Extension with others sets at anytime, no additional light sources needed, recognition value for students
Using various materials, investigate whether Iight which has
been reflected from their surfaces is polarized and if so, whether
the polarization is dependent on the angle of reflection.
