Purpose: When light travels through different mediums, it is being refracted. The purpose of this lab is to test Snell’s law of refraction. Hypothesis: The angles of refraction that I predicted from the angle of incidences by using Snell’s Law are below on the predicted angle Column. To obtain these values I used the index of refraction of crown glass because it is more likely close to the glass (plexiglass) that we are using. Angle of Incidence 0° 10° 20° 30° 40° 50° 60°
Predicted angle of refraction 0 6.56° 13.0° 19.2° 25.02° 30.27° 34.74° Variables and Controls: Independent Variable: The angle of the light coming from the ray box or the angle of incidence Dependent Variable: The angle of refraction on the plexiglass. Controls: The mediums where light travels (air and plexiglass).
Materials:
- ray box
- plexiglass
- white paper, protractor and pencil
Procedure:
1. I folded the blank paper into four equal parts. Then drew two intersecting lines perpendicular to each other.
2. Using the protractor I drew the angles of incidences or rays measuring 10°, 20°, 30°, 40°, 50° and 60°.
3. Then I drew a semi-circle on the top of the intersection representing the flexi glass and placed the flexi glass over the semi-circle.
4. Plugged in the ray box to a power source and using the single slit barrier, I placed the light ray along the normal to ensure that the light is not bent at this point.
5. I then placed the ray box allowing the light ray travels along the 10° then marked the refracted light on the glass.
6. And then repeated step 5 with 20°, 30°, 40°, 50° and 60°.
7. After that, I drew rays from the marks of the refracted light on the glass to the center.
8. Lastly measured and recorded the angles of refracted light

Therefore, coordinates of centre of ellipse = (3, -5). b) Given equation of ellipse. On comparing this equation with standard equation of ellipse with major axis 2a and minor axis 2b which is given by x-h2a2+y-k2b2=1 , we have, a2=64=>a=8 And b2=100=>b=10 Therefore, length of major axis = 2a = 2*8 = 16. And length of minor axis = 2b = 2*10 = 20. c) From part a) and b), we have a = 8 and b = 10 and h=3,k=-5 So, c2=b2-a2=102-82=100-64=36 =>c=sqrt36= 6.
