lenses
— corrective
— magnifying
Four ways light is affected by matter:
Review Reflection and Refraction

Reflection occurs when light bounces off a surface.

Refraction occurs when light bends crossing through
materials.
Law of Reflection
The incident ray
strikes the mirror.
The reflected ray
bounces off.
The angle of
incidence equals
the angle of
reflection.
23A Investigation: Optics
Key Question:
How are images created by
lenses and mirrors?
*Students read text section 23.1 AFTER Investigation 23A
23A Investigation Topics

View images with
lenses.

Project images with
lenses.

Find the magnification
of a lens.
Chapter 23.2 Objectives and Vocabulary


Describe what happens when
light goes from one material
into another.
Understand the index of
refraction.

Refraction and colors of light

Rainbows are
formed when
refracted light
passes through
water droplets.
23B Investigation: Optics and Images
Key Question:
How are images formed by light?

AFTER
Investigation 23B
23B Investigation Topics

Draw a ray diagram.

Determine the focal point of a lens.

Measure focal length.
Chapter 23.3 Objectives and Vocabulary


Learn how images form.

Learn the difference between a
real and virtual image.

Function of the pupil

The pupil gets
smaller blocking
more of the lens in
bright light.

Covering part of the
lens reduces the
amount of light
allowed in and but
doesn't alter the
image seen.
