Refraction & Reflection

See what happens to light when it traverses different materials at different angles. Dispersion, reflection, Snell’s law, and more.

Topics and Objectives:

  • Determine the index of refraction for materials based on angles of incidence and reflection.
  • Learn and use Snell’s Law to identify an unknown material.
  • Discover what the angles of total reflection are for these materials and explore what it means.
  • Explore the phenomenon of white light dispersion.


  • There are no suggested lab activities available at this time.

Preset Unknowns:

  • Unknown material and refractive indices
