Preparing for the lab:
We will be doing a somewhat modified version of "Lab 41" that makes use of different equipment than is shown in the lab manual and is directed specifically at answering the guiding question above.
Answer the pre-lab questions on LON-CAPA after reading the background information on pages 413 to 415 in the lab manual.
Note that the lab manual uses a different convention for identifying the object (p instead of s) and image (q instead of s') positions. You can use the notation we use in lecture for your calculations if you wish.
The procedure, data tables, and questions are all on a handout. I link in a copy of the procedure and a sample data table below, but the questions vary in detail from semester to semester so you will get the actual data table and questions in the lab.
As described in the handout for this lab,
... still under development ...
The photo below shows a closeup of the light source taken from
the other side of the table.
Notice the relative location of the arrow slit and the lamp.
