Light Ex3
1. A student is short sighted.
a) What does the term “short sighted” mean?
(1)
b) What type of lens is required to correct this eye defect?
(1)
c) The focal length of the lens needed to correct the student’s short sight is 180
mm. Calculate the power of this lens.
(3)
2. In the eye, refraction of light occurs at both the cornea and the lens. Some
eye defects can be corrected using a laser. Light from the laser is used to
change the shape of the cornea.
a) State what is meant by refraction of light.
(1)
–7
b) The laser emits light of wavelength 7 × 10 m. Calculate the frequency of the
light.
(3)
3. Lasers can be used in optical fibres for medical purposes.
a) Copy and complete the path of the laser light along the optical fibre.
(2)
b) Name the effect when the laser light hits the inside surface of the fibre.
