Sample Text:
After this you will be observing the refraction of light in water. The investigation is designed to give you an understanding of: • Using Snell’s law • Using ray tracing to explain observations Aim: To observe where two identical coins appear to have the same height in two different mediums (air and water) and further calculate the refractive index of water using these observations and results. Equipment Assemble this equipment before you start the exercise: • A bucket/tall (20 cm or higher) container, note a square/rectangular container such as the one shown in the photo works better for part 2 • A ruler • A long, straight object that can get wet pen/kebab stick/straw • Two identical coins (eg. Two 10c pieces) Not necessary but may be nice: • Sticky tape (stick it on...

PHYS1110 Investigation 4

This student studied:
University of New South Wales - PHYS1110 - Everyday Physics

In this experiment, the refractive index of water will be measured by observing two coins at different heights and the refraction of light in water. By doing this experiment, we will have clear understandings of Snell’s law and using ray tracing to explain observations.
