Laser Optics Tank

Item No. 614-0665
• Show some of the more curious aspects of optics, by focusing on its effects in water. • Light only moves at 75% its vacuum speed in water, which causes a ray to bend at the air/water interface, a phenomenon know as refraction. • If the angle is steep, the ray will reflect off this interface

Description

• Show some of the more curious aspects of optics, by focusing on its effects in water.

• Light only moves at 75% its vacuum speed in water, which causes a ray to bend at the air/water interface, a phenomenon know as refraction.

• If the angle is steep, the ray will reflect off this interface instead.

• We use a low power laser beam and a circular tank filled with water to demonstrate refraction and reflection.

• As the bright beam bends, its angle can be read on the scale printed around the tank.

• The laser is permanently fixed to the tank and can be pointed at any angle.

• Should you wish, you can fill the tank with mineral oil or other liquids to vary the effect.

• Laser meets US safety standards and tank is fully water-tight.
