PIRA Code(s): 6A20.45 Set up time:none Operation: Use the different types of mirrors to compare reflection. Physics and Science Concepts: Geometrical Optics, Reflection Safety: Do not shine bright light into mirror.
PIRA Code(s): 6A40.99 Set up time:none Operation: Shine a focused beam of light at one of the facets of the prism. Light is refracted and split into its constituent wavelengths (i.e. Colors of the rainbow). These can be used with various other optical experiments. Physics and Science Concepts: Optics, Refraction Safety: Edges and corners may be sharp
PIRA Code(s): 9C40.67 Set up time:none Operation: Scintillators can be used as a part of an experiment or by themselves to detect energetic particles from a radioactive source or from the background. Physics and Science Concepts: Optics Safety: Must have appropriate radiation health training prior to requiring sources. See the University of Delaware’s OSHA website.
