Light, Reflection, and Refraction

Chapters 14 and 15

OPTICS

Page 2: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Electromagnetic Waves• Magnetic field wave perpendicular to an electric field wave

• All objects emit EMWs. Temp EMW

• Electromagnetic spectrum – Range of all frequencies of light

• Visible light is a very small portion of that entire spectrum.

Page 3: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 4: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

c

• Speed of Light - 3.00 x 108m/s.

• = (wavelength) x (frequency)

• c = ƒ

Page 5: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Example

• AM Radio waves – 5.4 x 105 Hz– 1.7 x 106 Hz = ?

Page 6: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Visible Light

• Part of the EMS humans can see– Red - 750nm (x10-9m) – Purple - 380nm

• Bees, Birds – UV

• Snakes – IR

Page 7: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Reflection

• Light waves usually travel in straight paths

• Change in substance changes direction

• Opaque - does not permit light– some light reflected– some light absorbed as heat

Page 8: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Reflection

• Texture affects reflection• Diffuse reflection (rough)

– reflects light in many different directions,

• Specular reflection (smooth)– reflects light in only one direction

• Smooth – variations in surface

Page 9: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 10: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Mirrors

• Light striking a mirror reflects at the same angle that it struck the mirror

Page 11: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Flat Mirrors

• p = q– p- objects distance to the mirror– q - distance from the mirror to the image

• Virtual image– Does not exist– Made by our eyes

Page 12: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 13: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Ray Diagrams

• Used to predict the location of the image of an object

Page 14: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Concave Spherical Mirrors

• Reflective surface is on the interior of a curved surface – C – center of curvature– R – Radius (distance to C)– f – Focal Point (1/2 R)– Principal axis

• any line that passes through C

• usually oriented with an object

Page 15: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 16: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Mirror Equations

• 1/object distance + 1/image distance = 1/focal

length1/p + 1/q = 1/f

• Magnification (M) = Image height/object height (h / h)

- (q / p)• M = h / h = - (q / p)

Page 18: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Concave Spherical Mirror Rules

• A ray traveling through C will reflect back through C

• A ray traveling through (f) will reflect parallel to the PA

• A ray traveling to the intersection of the PA and the mirror will reflect at the same angle below the PA.

• A ray traveling parallel to PA will reflect through the focal point

Page 19: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Ray Diagrams

• Draw three rays– The image forms at the point of intersection

• Example– f = 10.0cm– p = 30.0cm– h = 3.00cm

Page 20: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Convex Spherical Mirrors

• Reflective surface is on the outside of the curve.

• The points f and C are located behind the mirror– negative

Page 21: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 22: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Rules• A ray parallel to the PA will reflect directly away

from f.• A ray towards f will reflect parallel to the PA• A ray towards C will reflect directly away from C.• A ray to the intersection of PA and mirror will

reflect at the same angle below the OA.• Trace the 3 diverging lines back through the

mirror to reveal the location of the image which is always virtual

Page 23: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 24: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Example

• f = -8.00cm• p= 10.0cm• h = 3cm

Page 25: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Parabolic Mirrors

• Rays that hit spherical mirrors far away from the OA often reflect though other points causing fuzzy images, spherical aberration.

• Telescopes use parabolic mirrors as they ALWAYS focus the rays to a single point.

Page 26: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 27: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Refraction

• Substances that are transparent or translucent allow light to pass though them.

• Changes direction of light • Due to the differences in speed of light

Page 28: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Analogy

• A good analogy for refracting light is a lawnmower traveling from the sidewalk onto mud

Page 29: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Index of Refraction (n)

• The ratio of the speed of light in a vacuum to the speed of light in a medium

n - c

Page 30: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 31: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 32: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Snell’s Law

• ni(sini) = nr(sinr)

r = sin-1{(ni/ nr)(sini)}

• Example i = 30.0⁰

– ni = 1.00

– nr = 1.52

Page 33: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

i = 30.0⁰ni = 1.00nr = 1.52

Page 34: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 35: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Total Internal Reflection

• If the angle of incidence of a ray is greater than a certain critical angle the ray will reflect rather than reflect

• This principal is responsible for the properties of fiber optic cables.

• Remember the lawn mower analogy…

Page 36: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 37: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Critical Angle

• sin Θc = nr / ni

• As long as nr < ni

• What is the critical angle for light traveling from Diamond to Air?

Page 38: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

nr = 1.000 ni = 2.419

Page 39: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Thin Lenses

• Converging

• Diverging

• f- curve of lens & index of refraction

Page 40: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Converging Lens Diagram

1. Ray parallel to PA, refracts through far focal point

2. Ray through center of lens, continues straight line

3. Ray through near focal point, refracts through lens, continues parallel to PA

• Treat lens as though it were a flat plane.

Page 41: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.
Page 42: Light, Reflection, and Refraction Chapters 14 and 15 OPTICS.

Diverging Lens Diagram

• Because the rays that enter a diverging lens do not intersect a virtual image is formed by tracing back the refracted rays.

• Ray 1 - parallel to PA, refracts away from near f, trace back to near f.

• Ray 2 - ray toward far f, refracts parallel to PA, trace back parallel to PA

• Ray 3 - ray through center, continues straight, trace back toward object
