Objectives
What you should know when all is said and done:
1. Use the ray model of light to distinguish between regular and diffuse reflection, state the law of
reflection and use it to find images with plane mirrors.
2. Use the ray model of light and Huygens’ Principle to find the direction a light ray would travel
upon crossing the boundary between media with different optical densities (undergoing
refraction).
3. Find focal points for curved mirrors and lenses, and relate to the center of curvature.
4. Trace ray diagrams for curved mirrors and curved lenses to find images.
5. Distinguish between real and virtual images.
6. Explain how the eye works, and how vision is corrected.
7. Explain how optical instruments work (i.e. the camera, telescope, microscope, and projector).
8. Differentiate between spherical and chromatic aberration and understand ways to correct each.

question:
Page 1
In this unit we will often discuss how the reflection of light from a mirror results in the formation of
an image. The term image as used here has an obvious context - physics. But the term image has
numerous other contexts - psychology (a positive self-image), religion (created in God's image),
business (the company's image), medicine (an x-ray image), etc.

Your research question involves finding a dictionary and looking up the definition of the word
