Index of refraction for glass

Laboratory 14 is a practical laboratory. The students were given four organizing questions, provided whatever equipment they requested, but given no further guidance other than a reminder that they had determined the index of refraction of water in laboratory ten.
  1. What is the experimental index of refraction for glass?
  2. What is the theoretic index of refraction of glass?
  3. What is the percentage difference for your data versus the theoretic value?
  4. How strong is the agreement between your data and the theoretic value?
Iumileen, Lupe, and Carlyne consider their set-up.
 Annabelle and Leilani plot initial results.
 Ceasar and Nena make measurements.
 Adam tries putting half of the penny under the glass, half not under the glass. Yvonne looks on.
