Mini Lab: Wavelength of Light Using a Diffraction Grating

Young scholars investigate the wavelength of light using diffraction grating. In this wavelength of light lesson plan, students use a diffraction grating to determine the wavelength of yellow light and check their results with the accepted value. They determine the measurement in nanometers and calculate the percent error between the actual and experimental values.

Lesson Planet has been fantastic!! I have been able to look at many different lessons based on my chosen theme and then just take the pieces I like and make it my own. It makes life so much easier and I have gleaned some great ideas. Thank you!!
