Because of my scrupulosity, I'm working on the setups/items for several months! For example We finally chose a projectile launcher from Phewe brand with enough spare parts. I love Vernier's launcher but it's kind of an automate device, it calculates anythings!
We're still working on others!
As you know, this year, 2015, is the year of light: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/International_Year_of_Light
I want to create a video clip limited to 90 seconds to show in our university's TED-like show to make students excited about light.
Do you have any idea? any experiment?
On real objects!
For example: A triangle shaped wood/iron
This seems great. But it needs a set of http://www.insize.com/products/tools/pdf/plate-l/4150.pdf [Broken] which is expensive! However I'm working on brands to find a low price gauge block. thank you.
Do you know what's the application...
Is there any usage for a measuring microscope in an electricity laboratory as a part of any experiment?
We have a Mitutoyo measuring microscope in our fundamental electricity physics lab which is a course for sophomores.
We used it for apparent depth in our optics lab which is retired now!
<< Moderator Note -- Dorea is an instructor asking about their physics lab >>
The first experiment in our fundamental physics lab is "Measuring & Measurement errors". Currently we have four devices:
- rule (0.5 mm)
- Vernier Caliper (0.02 mm)
- Micrometer (0.01 mm)
Do you know any economical quantitative electrostatics experiments for the university level?
I'm asking for some experiments for undergraduates in the electrostatics context. We have a Van-de-Graaff generator in our fundamental physics lab but this kind of devices are useful for demonstration...
Except numbers 1 and 7, others are simple and out of any conception: They just give the student ability to create a circuit! I'm looking for a simple version of some experiment such as Millikan experiment, focused on fundamental concepts of basic physics
I'm a new TA. They has built a new lab...
These are some devices in our lab that I don't know their application! I'm a lab TA.

Any birefringence plate has tree side. we ha a birefringence plate with tree different side in size. The question is this: Is index of refraction of this birefringence plate related to the distance which light travels through it?! In other words, each side of this plate have a different...
