University of New South Wales - PHYS1110 - Everyday Physics

Aim The aim for this investigation is to measure the refractive index of water by observing coins and then observe the refraction of light in water. Equipment • Container (20cm or higher) • A ruler • Stick • Two coins • Jug • Camera • Protractor Aim The aim for this investigation is to measure the refractive index of water by observing coins and then observe the refraction of light in water. Equipment • Container (20cm or higher) • A ruler • Stick • Two coins • Jug • Camera • Protractor Aim The aim for this investigation is to measure the refractive index of water by observing coins and then observe the refraction of light in water. Equipment • Container (20cm or higher) • A ruler • Stick • Two coins • Jug • Camera • Protractor Because the light passes from air to water, due to the different medium have different refractive index, so the lights can be refracted in the water. In the diagram, h1 is the water level, h2 is the distance between coin 2 and the water level, d is the horizontal distance.
