I'm in IB so it won't be a very high level lab...
It is a design lab so I can assume that I have all the equipment that I need.

I'm using a prism spectrometer to find the light intensity, which will then give me the value for wavelength (using the equation).

I'm using a incandescent light bulb tungsten filament. I'll find the temperature by finding resistance and thus the temperature (temperature coefficient).

The problem is:
I don't know which variables are controlled.

Please help!!!
