laser/colloid scattering and mentor

Postby Beau » Fri Jan 02, 2015 12:39 pm

If I shine a laser through jello at increasing intervals will the amount of scattering increase? For this project I will need a mentor please respond with your email if possible to be my mentor. :D

Hi Beau,

Can you please elaborate on what you mean by "different intervals"? What are you changing between measurements?

On Ask an Expert, we can only help you here in the forums. You will need to check with your teacher to find out whether corresponding with someone in these forums counts as having a mentor.
All the best,
