Year 11 Physics: Light Lab
Tuesday, December 15, 2020
Year 11 students from Assumption College English Program investigate some parameters of light. First, the students investigated the additive colour spectrum. Lights from different primary sources combined to form complementary colours. The students investigated diffraction patterns using lasers and single slits. Finally, students used a diffraction grating (many slits which are closely spaced) with a laser. From the resulting diffraction pattern, the students were able to determine the spacing of the slits on the diffraction grating.
