Students will learn about total internal reflection. More specifically, they will learn what the critical angle is, how it is derived and how to solve for it in real life applications.
Describes total internal reflection and some sample problems.
Learn about refraction, reflection, and total internal reflection in the context of a light ray passing into and out of a diamond.
Explains the physics behind total internal reflection.
Reviews total internal reflection and problems involving critical angles.
A list of student-submitted discussion questions for Total Internal Reflection.
This is an activity for students to complete while reading the Total Internal Reflection Concept
This guide looks at geometric optics: reflection, refraction, Snell's law, total internal reflection, ray diagram, real and virtual images, mirrors, and lenses.
