Reveal the hidden nature of color and visible light with this durably constructed, economical spectroscope. Measure the wavelengths of visible light from 4000 to 7000 Angstroms with the precision of +/- 50 Angstroms using the built-in scale. Includes a link to instructions that include the history of light theory, diffraction gratings, and suggestions for numerous experiments. 19.5 x 9 x 2.5 cm (7.25" x 3.5" x 1")
This product will support your students' understanding of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)*, as shown in the table below.
