Index of Refraction

The semicircular block is ideal for a first quantitative activity on refraction. When placed as in this activity, rays bend only when exiting the block, simplifying observations. Students will measure angles of incidence and refraction, and calculate the index of refraction of Plexiglas.

Images Produced by Curved Mirrors

Students use the Light Box and Optical Set’s two different curved mirrors to investigate how light reflects from concave mirrors. Students make predictions and observations, and make generalizations about the focal point of a mirror, depending on its curvature.
