Title: Light in isotropic media
Description: The laws of reflection and refraction are studied in this experiment. A stepper motor controls the rotation of a disc to which a laser is fixed. By moving the motor, the laser rotates around a plastic container filled with water and therefore, the angle in which its light incidences over this medium changes. The reflected and refracted rays can be seen with the webcam and a virtual pointer is used to measure the corresponding reflecting and refracting angles.
