1 Map to Help Room (G2B90) Lecture room Help room Homework Turn in your homework at the beginning of class next lecture. It will be collected shortly after lecture starts. Put your homework in the appropriate alphabetized box on the right side of the back of the lecture hall (the right as I would see it from the front) Please consider coming to office hours before ing us with homework questions. 1

2 Clickers Register your clicker at iclicker.com No exceptions if you are absent, forget your clicker, run out of batteries, etc. You do get more points for a correct answer, so try to figure it out! Chapter 1, continued Electromagnetic waves Is there a medium? What is wiggling? Electric and magnetic fields EM Spectrum Visible light Radio waves Microwaves Xrays Resonance Why do we only see some EM waves? Examples and demos Light sources Incandescent bulbs Fluorescent bulbs Other sources 2

3 White Light through a Prism 700 nm 400 nm A prism spreads out the over- lapping wavelengths in white light into different spatial locations where they can be seen as colors. Clicker Question Picture a rope with a pulse disturbance moving horizontally. How does the distance and direction traveled by pieces of the rope compare to the distance and direction traveled by the pulse? a) The rope piece travels more than the pulse, in the same direction b) The rope piece travels more than the pulse, at a right angle to the pulse c) The rope piece travels less than the pulse, in the same direction d) The rope piece travels less than the pulse, at a right angle to the pulse 3

4 Clicker Question Which is the correct light ray to describe how we see the apple? (the color of the arrow is not relevant) A B E D C Remember the light has to come from the bulb first, so B is not correct. C is the correct light ray Electromagnetic (EM) Waves Light is part of the Electromagnetic Spectrum Unlike sound or rope waves, EM waves do not need a material to transmit them, they can travel through empty space So what is actually wiggling in an EM wave? 4

5 Electric and Magnetic Fields Static electricity Magnetic field lines Electromagnetic Waves Made up of oscillating electric and magnetic fields 5

6 EM Waves: Key Points Waves can travel in empty space The oscillating fields are at right angles (perpendicular) to the direction of wave motion Electromagnetic Spectrum 6

7 Electromagnetic Spectrum Clicker Question The speed of light is 3 x 10 8 m/s A radio signal takes 2.5 x 10-3 s (2.5 milliseconds) to travel from Boston to DC. What is the distance between these cities? a) 1200 km b) 750 km c) 7500 km d) 500 km e) 1000 km distance =speed * time 3 x 10 8 m/s * 2.5 x 10-3 s 7.5 x 10 5 m 750 km 7

8 Images at different frequencies IR Radar UV White light Xray Millimeter Wave Scanning 8

9 Waves and Resonance Oscillating systems have a special frequency at which they like to vibrate, called the resonant frequency External driving of these systems at the resonant frequency will result in the most efficient transfer of energy Ex: Swings, rocking your car out of a snowbank, washboard ripples on a dirt road, shattering a crystal glass, dye bleaching, light perception in your eye, washing machine Example: Pendulum What happens when we change the length of the string? What happens when I change how fast I move my hand? The same process occurs in our eyes, which are not sensitive to frequencies outside what we call visible light 9

10 Effect of resonance produced by military helicopter blade going around at frequency resonant with the helicopter body What do resonances have to do with light? When light is absorbed by atoms we can think of this as a resonance For example, we see light rays of 470 nm coming into our eyes because this light excites a resonance in certain atoms inside our eyes EM waves with the wrong frequency do not excite the resonance, and we don t see them. Light can also be emitted by atoms, which is also a form of resonance This is how fluorescent lights, lasers and LEDs work. 10

11 Incandescent Light Bulbs Incandescent Light Bulbs Filament with current of electrons which hit into atoms causing light to be emitted Atom Electrons Atom Atom Light emitted at many different resonance frequencies of atoms appears as white light 11

12 Incandescent Light Bulbs A continuous light source Almost 90% of its emission is invisible to the human eye, producing heat and wasting energy Clicker Question The light from an ordinary incandescent light bulb appears white because a) A current of electrons excites a resonance in atoms at the frequency of white light. b) A current of electrons excites resonances in atoms at many different frequencies c) A current of electrons wiggles at the frequency of white light 12

13 Fluorescent Light Bulbs Fluorescent bulbs have a lower current and power usage for the same light output in the visible range How do they do this? The atoms inside a fluorescent bulb have ultraviolet resonant frequencies Atom Atom Electrons Atom Invisible ultraviolet light Phosphors white light 13

14 Fluorescent Light Bulbs Because the phosphors emit at very specific resonant frequencies, the spectrum is not continuous Incandescent vs. Fluorescent 14

15 Neon lights Produced the same way, but with a different set of atoms in the tube to produce the different colors. Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) A semiconductor system Charges are initially separated An applied current pushes them up the hill, where they can recombine and emit light 15

16 Clicker Question What kind of bulbs do you think they use to keep food hot at a buffet bar? a) Incandescent b) Fluorescent c) Neon d) LEDs Color Temperature Light from ideal sources is generally a mixture of different wavelengths Think of the rainbow generated by sunlight The spectra of different light bulbs The mixture of wavelengths can be understood by asking how bright is the mixture at each wavelength How do these different formulations change the color of the light? 16

17 The hotter the source the more bluish the white light. The cooler the source the more reddish the white light These are curves of the intensity of each of the wavelengths present in an "off-white" light as the (color) temperature of the filament in the light bulb increases. Color Temperature in Fluorescent Lights Fluorescent light bulbs all feel the same temperature when you touch them, but the phosphors can be selected to simulate a specific color temperature. From 17

18 Here is how a picture changes under lighting with different color temperatures Higher color temp more bluish You can also change the color temperature in imaging processing software Lower color temp more reddish It's a good idea to remember some rough wavelengths associated with colors Violet and blue are what we see when shorter wavelength visible rays enter our eyes. They have relatively higher frequencies Red is how we see longer wavelength visible rays Red has a relatively smaller frequency 18
