Students will learn how light reflects off mirrors. Flat mirrors, concave mirrors and convex mirrors are all covered.
Learn about the law of reflection by curved mirrors and how the shape and size of a telescope impacts its observing capabilities.
Understand the law of reflection by plane mirrors and the formation of virtual images.
Watch an explanation of the mechanics of concave mirrors.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Mirrors.
This guide looks at geometric optics: reflection, refraction, Snell's law, total internal reflection, ray diagram, real and virtual images, mirrors, and lenses.
