6A 10.20 - Laser with Corner Mirror
Demonstrates: Reflection of light.
Description: A laser is projected onto a corner mirror which reflects the light on all sides.
6A 10.30 - Plane Mirrors
Demonstrates: Reflection and virtual images.
Description: Plane mirrors can be used to introduce the concept of ray tracing.
6A 10.40 - Folding Mirrors with Object
Demonstrates: Reflection of light.
Description: Two large mirrors will give 360 degrees reflected view of the object.
6A 20.10 - Bird in a Box
Demonstrates: Reflection of light.
Description: Bird is upside down in the box but the mirror flips image to right side up.
6A 20.20 - Concave and Convex Mirrors
Demonstrates: Reflection.
Description: These mirrors can give a virtual and a real image.
6A 20.40 - Large Spherical Mirror
Demonstrates: Virtual and real images.

6A 40.10 - Optical Disk I
Demonstrates: Concave and convex lenses.
Description: Light enters one lens, is refracted then enters other lens and is refracted again.
6A 40.20 - Optical Disk II
Demonstrates: Refraction of light.
Description: Light enters the lens and is refracted.
6A 40.41 - Invisibility Fluid
Demonstrates: Index of Refraction.
Description: A mixture of CCl4 and C6H6 has an index of refraction similar to Pyrex glass. When a rod of soft glass is placed in fluid, it can be clearly seen. When a pyrex glass rod is placed in fluid it becomes "invisible."
