1 Duncanrig Secondary School East Kilbride S2 Physics Elective Light and Sound Name: Pupil Booklet Class: SCN 3-11a - By exploring the refraction of light when passed through different materials, lenses and prisms, I can explain how light can be used in a variety of applications. SCN 4-11a By recording and analysing sound signals, I can describe how they can be manipulated and used in sound engineering. Learning Outcomes Homework Exercises Unit Summary

2 S2 Physics Elective Light and Sound Learning Outcomes How Confident am I with the Learning Outcomes? Circle the faces to keep a record of your progress. I am confident that I understand this and I can apply this to problems I have some understanding but I need to revise this some more I don t know this or I need help because I don t understand it You can use this to help you pick the areas of the unit that need the most revision. As you revise your class work you will be able to circle more and more smiley faces. If that does not help then you should ask your teacher! Learning Outcomes 1. State that the speed of light in air/vacuum is m/s. 2. State that light slows down as it passes from air/vacuum into another transparent material. 3.
