So our laser pointer and mirror experiment gave us a really good understanding of how light interacts with a mirror, but we've also agreed as scientists that it's good to gather as much evidence to support a claim as possible. So even though we figured out that the angle the light comes in on a mirror pretty much leaves the mirror at the same angle in the opposite direction, we wanted to use our light meters to gather some quantitative data to support this idea.
Our data support this idea about the matching angles. Notice how the group's data above has the highest light sensor reading at matching angles. But does it happen with every material that reflects light? Check back soon to find out!
