Measuring Variable Refractive Indices Using Digital Photos
Lombardi, S.; Monroy, G.; Testa, I.; Sassi, E.
Physics Education, v45 n1 p83-92 Jan 2010
A new procedure for performing quantitative measurements in teaching optics is presented. Application of the procedure to accurately measure the rate of change of the variable refractive index of a water-denatured alcohol mixture is described. The procedure can also be usefully exploited for measuring the constant refractive index of distilled water. (Contains 11 figures and 4 tables.)
