M8-06: SUGAR SOLUTION IN TUBE - BARBER POLE

m8-06am8-06b

 

Additional Info

  • ID Code: M8-06
  • Purpose: Demonstrate rotation of the plane of polarization of light.
  • Description: White light from a bright point source is polarized and propagated along a tube containing a sugar solution somewhat less dense than Karo syrup. The color seen by observers in the horizontal plane changes much like a barber pole effect. Because more of the blue light is scattered out of the tank, the color gets more redish toward the far end of the tube.
  • Availability: Available
