Students will gain an understanding of the speed of light and work problems involving light. The distance of a light year is also explained and practiced.
Understand why a ray of light passes from one point to another in such a way that the time taken is a minimum which indeed results in the law of refraction.
Calculate distances in meters and in light years using the speed of light, understand the concept of light years.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Speed of Light.
This study guide provides a brief review of light's behavior as a wave (interference, diffraction, and Doppler effect).
