Investigation between the angle of Incidence and detraction

Extracts from this document...


Investigation between the angle of Incidence and detraction In this investigation, I have been asked to find out if there is any correlation between the angle of incidence and by the amount of defraction which takes place and find out if they go up in a direct proportion with one another. For this I am intending to shine a ray of light through an Pyrex block and different angles and the I shall record my results on pieces of paper once I have done this I will measure the amount of defraction. ...read more.


A ray box 2. A Pyrex block 3. A sharp pencil 4. Sheets of paper 5. A protractor and a ruler This is all of the equipment which I will be needing for my investigation. In addition to this I shall also draw up a step by step also to help my investigation to run smoothly this is my step by step: 1. collect and set up all equipment 2. ...read more.


Join the marks up on the page and make sure that they are all running in a straight line 6. Measure using a ruler the distance which the two different lines are apart from one another This concludes my step by step As this investigation is not using any hazardous materials there is, no special safety features which I will need to follow other than the normal lab safety features Now I shall go and complete the experiment to get my results ...read more.
