Thanks guys!

    Oh right, a glass block :p I was picturing a box with glass sides :p

    I'm still at school, but will have a look when I get home. Just had a google and came up with this. http://www.freezeray.com/physics.htm

    Have you done the investigation yourself? Because seeing it helps a lot. If not, try out the 3D simulations on that site.

    I'm on that site now :p It's confusing though! But thanks!

    And no I haven't done it, I don't normally go to science. So ermmm now I'm a bit stuck :-/

    you'd get refraction through the glass block (AKA prism), and reflection from the mirror

    see question 5 and 6

    Might be a bit advanced, but here is a gcse bitesize page on refraction.

    Also try youtube for videos of the actual experiment... you'll be able to understand/remember it so much better if you see it for real rather than just looking at a diagram.

    Ahh cheers :) I'll flick though that and the link BG sent.
    It's level 7/8 work so not quite GCSE.

    Do you want a photo of the ray diagram, I think I still have them?

    Is the mirror and the glass box supposed to be happening on the same diagram?
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    eeerrmm I don't think so.
