Reflection - Data Sheet

Discuss lab data with fellow group members, then record your answers in your own words.

*NOTE: For #s 1-4, allow a different member of the group to measure the angles in each question. The group will share this data.

 

  1. Using the protractor, measure the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection for data set #1. Record your measurements.

    Angle of incidence = ____________

    Angle of reflection = ____________

     

  2. Using the protractor, measure the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection for data set #2. Record your measurements.

    Angle of incidence = ____________

    Angle of reflection = ____________

     

  3. Using the protractor, measure the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection for data set #3. Record your measurements.

    Angle of incidence = ____________

    Angle of reflection = ____________

     

  4. Using the protractor, measure the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection for data set #4. Record your measurements.

    Angle of incidence = ____________

    Angle of reflection = ____________

     

  5. Reporting your results: On the back of this sheet, create a chart which will adequately display your lab results.

     

     

  6. What mathematical principal or truth can you arrive at using your data and that of your classmates?

     

     

     

  7. In a well written paragraph, explain how the basketball model relates to the behavior of light that you observed in the lab.
