ID Code: L1-12
Purpose: To show that light obeys the inverse square law.
Description: With the lens one meter from the screen the area lit by the projector beam is measured. Moving the lens back to two meters from the screen, the width and height of the lit area both double, so the area is four times as great and the intensity is one-fourth for twice the distance. This demonstrates that the inverse square law has as much to do with geometry as with wave propagation.
