The Use of Cylindrical Lenses in Easy Experiments for Physics Education and the Magic Arts
Bednarek, Stanislaw; Krysiak, Jerzy
Physics Education, v46 n5 p591-594 Sep 2011
The purpose of this article is to present the properties of cylindrical lenses and provide some examples of their use in easy school physics experiments. Such experiments could be successfully conducted in the context of science education, in fun experiments that teach physics and in science fair projects, or used to entertain an audience by staging tricks, effects or illusions of seemingly impossible or supernatural feats. (Contains 3 photos and 1 figure.)
