1.2 m Optics Track -- Basic Optics - OS-8508

OS8508_MAIN.jpg

Overview

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 into which PASCO optics components, such as mounted lenses, mirrors, and light boxes, can easily snap . If you want a bench longer than 1.2 m, use the Optics Bench Connectors (OS-8538).

Applications

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

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.
