3. Add three liters of water to the prism. Mark the point that the laser hits the wall. (is is Point a). Rotate the prism so that the path of the refracted beam (Points d to f) is parallel with the base of the prism. (You can see the base in the rst diagram of the procedure).

4. Move the prism aside. Connect Points d and f along with points d and b.

5. Attach a string to Point a and bring the string so that it passes through Point f, and then crosses line d-b. Mark where the string crosses line d-b and label this Point c.

  • 6.

    Measure the distance from Point c to Point e.

  • 7.

    Add this distance to line e-b. You now have length L, which

you will use in trigonometry along with length X to nd θmb.
