Part 1 - Reflection

 

 

DATA TABLE:

 

Incident angle, θi

30

45

60

Reflected angle, θr

 

 

 

 

 

  1. What can you conclude about the relationship of θi and θr? Does this verify the law of reflection?

 

 

Part 2 - Reflection: 

 

 

Step I - Find the image location, circle that point and label it "I". Measure and record the object distance do and the image distance di. What can you say about the location of the image?

 

 

Step J - Is the image real or virtual?
