3 Law of Reflection The angle of incidence (i) is equal to the angle of reflection (r) Note: Both angles are measured with respect to the normal. This is a construction line that is perpendicular to the reflecting surface at the point of incidence. normal angle of incidence, i angle of reflection, r incident ray reflected ray mirror

4 The image formed by a plane mirror object image normals construction lines (virtual light rays) plane mirror The image produced by the plane mirror is: 1. The same size as the object 2. The same distance behind the mirror as the object is in front 3. Upright (the same way up as the object) 4. Back-to-front compared with the object (lateral inversion) 5. Virtual

5 Real and virtual images REAL images are formed where light rays cross after reflection by a mirror or refraction by a lens. Real images can be cast onto a screen. Example: A projector image VIRTUAL images are formed where light rays only appear to come from. A virtual image cannot be cast onto a screen. Example: The image formed by a plane mirror

6 Choose appropriate words to fill in the gaps below: The law of reflection states that the angle of reflection is always equal to the angle of incidence. Both angles are measured relative to the, normal a line that is at ninety degrees to the reflecting surface at the point of reflection. A plane mirror forms a virtual image which is unlike a real image in that it cannot be cast onto a screen. The image in a plane mirror is also the same size and the same way up as the object. WORD SELECTION: normal virtual size reflection real equal ninety

10 Convex mirror A convex mirror is like the outside of a spoon. convex mirror principal focus principal axis O F C centre of curvature focal length, f radius of curvature, r

11 Mirror definitions The principal axis is a construction line that is perpendicular to and passes through the centre of the mirror, O. The principal focus, F is the point through which all rays travelling parallel to the principal axis before reflection pass through or appear to come from after reflection. The focal length, f is the distance from the centre of the mirror, O to the principal focus, F. The centre of curvature, C is the centre of the circle of which the surface of the mirror is a part. The radius of curvature, r is the distance along the principal axis between the centre of the mirror, O and the centre of curvature and equal to TWICE the focal length, f of the mirror.

22 Magnification Question: magnification = image height object height Calculate the magnification if a mirror produces an image of 40cm from an 8cm sized object. magnification = image height / object height = 40cm / 8cm magnification = 5 x

24 Choose appropriate words to fill in the gaps below: There are two types of curved mirror, concave and convex. Concave mirrors look like the inside of a spoon. Concave mirrors converge light parallel to the principal axis so that all the rays pass through the principal focus. Makeup mirrors can be concave in order to provide a magnified view of the face. Light is diverged by convex mirrors. These always produce virtual images and are used to provide a wide field of view which is especially useful for car rear view mirrors. WORD SELECTION: converge magnified concave principal car convex inside virtual

26 Refraction

27 Refraction occurs when a wave changes speed as it passes from one region to another. This speed change usually causes the wave to change direction. Water waves slow down as they pass over from a deeper to a shallower region. Light slows down as it passes from air into glass, perspex or water.

28 Refraction of light at a plane surface (a) Less to more optical dense transition (e.g. air to glass) AIR GLASS normal angle of incidence angle of refraction Light bends TOWARDS the normal. The angle of refraction is LESS than the angle of incidence.

29 (b) More to less optical dense transition (e.g. water to air) normal angle of refraction angle of incidence WATER AIR Light bends AWAY FROM the normal. The angle of refraction is GREATER than the angle of incidence.

30 Refraction experiment Typical results: angle of incidence / angle of refraction / deviation / No deviation occurs when the angle of incidence is zero. Increasing the angle of incidence increases the deviation.

34 Choose appropriate words to fill in the gaps below: Refraction occurs when a wave changes speed as it crosses the boundary between two regions. The direction of the wave also usually changes. Light rays deviate towards the normal when they pass from less dense air to more dense. perspex The greater the angle of incidence the greater is the. deviation Different colours of light deviate by different amounts. Violet deviates the. most A prism can be used to split the colours of white light into a spectrum.

51 The camera uses a converging lens to produce an image on a light detecting surface such as a CCD (Charge Coupled Device) chip or photographic film. The Camera

52 In most cases the subject (object) is well more than twice the focal length of the lens away from the camera. The image produced is therefore: diminished, inverted and real. subject (object) F F image produced on CCD or film 2F

53 Structure of a simple camera shutter CCD or film lens aperture Focussing is achieved by moving the lens away from or towards the light detector. The further the subject is away from the camera the closer the lens is moved towards the CCD / film. The amount of light reaching the light detector is controlled by adjusting the size of the stop aperture and the length of time that the shutter opens.

54 Choose appropriate words to fill in the gaps below: Lenses work by the process of. refraction A converging lens is made by using a convex shaped piece of glass or perspex. A magnifying glass requires the object to be placed nearer than its focal length. The image formed is. virtual A projection lens produces a magnified and inverted image whereas a camera lens normally produces a diminished image. In both cases the image is. real Diverging lenses are used to correct sight. short WORD SELECTION: convex magnified short refraction nearer real virtual diminished
