Sources of errors in a spectrometer experiment

  • #1
[Note from mentor: this lacks the homework template because it was originally posted in a non-homework forum.]

I know this seems like a very dumb question but every other error I think of has been covered in precautions and the only errors I can think of are dumb ones. Help ! I had to plot the i-d curve and I honestly can't figure it out.

Your Lordship,

Please post things like this in homework

PF guidelines require an effort -- see guidelines

It also 'helps' to post a complete problem (in your case specific experiment & further processing) description : one can do an awful lot of different experiments with spectrometers.

How do I move the thread ? And this was more like a general question rather than a homework question but okay.

The curve of angle of deviation vs angle of incidence
