1.2 m Optics Track – Basic Optics

Product Code: OS-8508

Description

The 1.2 m optics bench is the perfect length for studying the inverse square law, diffraction/interference patterns, and the behavior of light traveling through lenses or off of curved mirrors. It is made of extruded aluminum and has a wide central channel for PASCO optics components, such as mounted lenses, mirrors, and light boxes.


Features

  • Rugged aluminum construction
  • Built in metric tape
  • Wide central channel in which PASCO’s Basic Optics components, such as mounted lenses, can easily snap
  • T-slots on the sides and center of the bench for components with a square bolt and thumb screw, such as the Optics Bench Rod Clamp.

Applications

  • Investigate the behavior of light traveling through lenses and reflecting from curved mirrors
  • Conduct diffraction/interference experiments
  • Explore the inverse-square law
