Pinhole Experiments

Pinhole ExperimentsScott + HarrisonPurpose- To investigate the relationship between object distance and image height while image distance and object height are constant.- To investigate the relationship between object height and image height while object distance and image distance are constant- To investigate the relationship between image distance and and image height while maintaining a constant object height and object distance- To investigate the effects on the image by increasing the diameter of the pinhole and creating more than one pinholesHypothesis- If we decrease the object distance, then the image height will increase.- If we increase the object height, the image height will increase- If we increase the image distance, then the object distance will increase- If we increase the number of pinholes, multiple images will form- If we increase the diameter of the hole, the image will be less focusedEquipment/DiagramLight source for holding cards, pinhole camera (a box with one end open and the other with a translucent screen inside a larger box with one end open and a square hole in the other), arrow cards, meter stick, aluminum foil

Procedure

Cover a hole with aluminum foil and poke a hole with a pin in it.Face the pinhole at a bright object (not necessarily a lightbulb).Set a screen behind the pinhole for the image to be projected on.Vary the distance of the object from the pinhole, while keeping the image distance from the pinhole and object height constant.Vary the distance of the screen (thus the image) from the pinhole, while keeping the object distance and object height constant.Vary the height of the object (arrow), while keeping the image distance and object distance constant.Poke some more pinholes and observe the effect.Increase the size of a pinhole and observe the effect.

Increasing Object Distance, Decrease Image HeightIf we increase the object height, we increase the image height.All ray diagrams are based on idea that light travels as a straight line. If we increase the image height, we increase the image distance
