Demonstration kit Geometric optics for the steel board


These model bodies can be used on a steel board in conjunction with Laser Ray Box 47128 to demonstrate the following laws of ray optics:

  • Path of rays through convex or concave lenses
  • Path of rays through a prism
  • Reflection from plane and curved mirrors
  • Refraction of light
  • Refractive index

 
In addition, it is possible to demonstrate the path of rays in normally sighted, short sighted and long sighted eyes, as well as how sight defects can be corrected using lenses.
 
The outlines of the eye are depicted on a pre-prepared adhesive foil sheet. The functioning of optical instruments such as cameras or telescopes can also be shown using adhesive sheets and the model bodies. Total internal reflection inside a glass fibre cable can also be demonstrated.
 
The bottoms of the model bodies and adhesive sheets are coated with magnetic foil so that they can stick to any steel board.
