Reflection and Refraction of Light

Light is one of the most fundamental energy forms and an understanding of several of its properties is essential to any understanding of science. In Physics class this week, students investigated the reflection and refraction of light using different transparent blocks. In this investigation, students verify the Law of Refection by drawing ray diagrams and measuring the angles of incident and reflection with a protractor. Students also observed the phenomenon of refraction of light where light changes direction as it passes through different media.
