In this experiment, the students investigate the refraction of
light on passing from air to glass and measure the angle of
refraction β for a given angle of incidence α. At the end,
they should come to a conclusion about this relationship and
should be able to formulate a principle.
With the aid of selected values for the angle of incidence α
and also taking the value of α = 0°, they should
understand the general validity of Snell's law of refraction in a
qualitive form and the conditions for its validity.
- 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
What does refraction of light mean?
- Investigate the behaviour of narrow light beams at the boundary
between air and glass.
- Measure the angle of refraction as a function of the angle of
incidence of light passing from air to glass.
