Light and Weight, How Do They Relate?
Division:Physical & Mathematical Sciences
Region:Rideau-St. Lawrence
City:Lyn, ON
School:Thousand Islands S.S.
Abstract:This project tested the range and accuracy of a homemade Michelson interferometer modified as a measurement tool for tiny masses. The device uses principles of light interference, a lever and a mathematical formula to determine the mass of an object. After it was built, tested, and calibrated, it was able to accurately measure the mass of a sample such as an eyelash.
