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.
Speed of Light Interactive
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).
