Measuring Sugar Content with a laser pointer

Postby bhaskarbaps » Thu Dec 01, 2011 6:48 pm

I chose this topic from this website. I am trying to do the experiment. I am having trouble making the prism. Please go check out the instructions so you understand what I'm talking about. I am confused. Am I supposed to take the tape off after I glue everything because I can't see the laser through the electrical tape. Please reply as soon as possible. My project is due December 14 and I haven't started yet. Thanks in advance. :cry:

Hello and welcome to the forum!

Yes, you should remove the electrical tape after EVERYTHING is glued and allowed to dry. You should then have a clear triangular container to hold your solutions.
