Determine the Width of Human Hair
- Durable materials for years of use
- Instruction manual included
Introducing the new Cenco AP Physics lab series. Ideal for AP, B and C, I, II and advanced honors physics courses, each of the 24 experiments is aligned with the College Board AP Curriculum. The teacher guides and student manuals are authored by an experienced AP Physics teacher, so you can trust the setups to be successful in your classroom. Lead students through these hands-on labs using the outlined guided-inquiry approach. All labs come complete with instructions and materials for up to six students per lab group, the inquiry based instructions are found in the separate manuals. For your convenience, labs are packaged to allow you to purchase only what is required for each experiment.
Students will explore the diffraction pattern produced by diffraction gratings and then determine the width of a human hair. By using a diffraction grating of known spacing, students will verify the wavelength of a laser pointer and use this to determine the spacing between the lines of a CD. The kit includes a laser pointer, slit film, diffraction grating with three spacing, scrap CD, and a blank slide mount. Required but not included are support stands and a meter stick. The dual red/green laser pointer is a recommended accessory for this lab.
