The aim of the experiment is to study elliptically polarized light using a Fresnel rhomb and to determine the ratio of semi major axis to the semi minor axis of the various elliptically polarised light forms for different angles of plane polarised incidence at the rhomb
A dual energy radiography method using basis decomposition was developed, the process
to do it is shown and it is compared against an alternate more direct method of analyzing the
data using the logarithm of the original data, concluding that this second method does work
but it is not better than basis decomposition.

The impact crater of a small metal ball of 63.7 grams (0.0637kg) is dropped from 8 different heights, ranging from 0.20m to 0.90m was observed. A mean was measured for the craters diameter. Using the equation E=mg$\Delta$h given that we have m, and g is a constant of 9.81 we can find the kinetic energy of the ball on impact. The relationship between crater diameter, D, and impact energy, E, is given by D=kE$^n$ where K is constant and n is found by the gradient of the graph and is also constant. This can be modified to give $\log D = n\log E + \log k$.
