In this project, we will use Snell's Law to our advantage in order to calculate the index of refraction, and thereby the speed of light of through a h...
Set up the optics kit with ray table/bench, laser/light source, and plan-convex tray. If you are not using a kit, you may make do with a protractor. F...
Shine the laser through the flat side of the tray, as seen in the previous setup. You should not observe any refraction when shining normal to the fla...
Use Snell's law with all of your data points to determine the index of refraction of the solution. Assume the index of refraction of air to be 1 or 1....
