Project Title: Affects of Laser Pointers



We want to find out how lon g the human eye can last against a beam from a laser pointer without permanent or short-term damage. We will be using a C++ program to determine this. We are making an equation to solve our problem using the variables, A for angle, and P for power output. We are doing this experiment because we want to inform laser pointer customers about how long it will take to harm the eye. Lasers are grouped into four classes by their power. A class 1 laser totally safe on the other hand a class 4 laser is extremely dangerous. A more recent class 3 laser pointer could cause injury to the eye if viewed for less than a fourth of a second.
