Light Waves II

Performance Objectives

Students should be able to;

  1. Measure angels of incidence and refraction and hence deduce a value for the refractive index of a given material.
  2. Explain the meaning of critical angle and total internal reflection stating the conditions under which they occur.
  3. Establish the relationship between critical angle and refractive index and apply it to the solution of simple problems
  4. Trace light rays through a triangular prism and obtain graphically the value of the angle of minimum deviation.
