Module 7 | The nature of light

Content 2: Light: wave model

Lesson 1 | Newton and Huygens

  • analyse the experimental evidence that supported the models of light that were proposed by Newton and Huygens (ACSPH050, ACSPH118, ACSPH123)

Lesson 2 | Young interference

  • conduct investigations to analyse quantitatively the interference of light using double slit apparatus and diffraction gratings (d\sin \theta = m\lambda) (ACSPH116, ACSPH117, ACSPH140)

Lesson 3 | Diffraction of light experiment

  • conduct investigations to analyse qualitatively the diffraction of light (ACSPH048, ACSPH076)

Lesson 4 | Malus' law

  • conduct investigations quantitatively using the relationship of Malus’ Law (I = I_{max}\cos ^{2}\theta) for plane polarisation of light, to evaluate the significance of polarisation in developing a model for light (ACSPH050, ACSPH076, ACSPH120)
