This experiments makes average demands on the experimental
abilities of the students. It provides them with essential insights
into an optical device with which most will be familiar. Judging
from past experience, students will be sufficiently motivated to
investigate the construction and function of a camera.
Confirmation of the validity of the equations
1/f = 1/g + 1/b and B/G = b/g is
primarily intended to confirm facts already learned. In order
to save time, this part of the experiment can be left out as it is
not essential for the understanding of the camera.
- 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
In this experiment you will construct a model of a camera and
- the dependence of the image size on the distance of the object
from the camera,
- the significance of the diaphragm for image quality,
- the dependence of the image size on the focal length of the
- the validity of the equations
1/f = 1/g + 1/b and B/G = b/g.
