Overview

Students construct an astronomical telescope, a Galilean telescope and a compound microscope on the optical bench. Using a viewing screen with grid they find and describe the ways in which images are changed by the multiple lens systems.

The method parallax is used to locate virtual images. Students draw ray diagrams and measure the magnification of the instruments.

This experiment is available for Download at no additional charge.

Concepts Covered:
