Description:

In this student activity students will determine how light intensity from a point source changes as you move farther from the light source. They will relate the patterns observed in the spreading of light to the patterns observed in the “spread” of gravity’s influence into space and develop a general mathematical understanding of how gravity’s influence changes as you increase the distance between two masses.
