Physical scnce

Concave Mirror curves inward like inside a bowl and rays converge (come together)as they bounce back.
convex mirror curves outward and light rays spread out as they bounce back.
Transparent materials that transmit all light. Light goes through them
Translucent materials that scatter the light as it passes through them
Plane Mirror a mirror that is flat
Refraction Light moving from one transparent material to another undergoes a change in direction
Refelction The law of reflection states that the angle of an incoming ray of light and the angle of the reflected light are always equal.
Evidence of waves Interference and polorization provide evidence that light is a wave.
Luminous Something that produces light.
Opaque material reflects or absorbs all light
transmitted When light passes right through an object
reflected When light bounces off an object
absorbed When light is taken in or trapped by an object
refracted When light rays enter a new medium at an angle, the change in speed causes them to bend
Incandescent When visible light is given off at high tempatures
electromagnetic wave Electromagnetic waves are formed when an electric field couples with a magnetic field
Black body radiation idealized material that perfectly absorbs and perfectly emits electromagnetic radiation.
Consistent law principle The laws of physics are the same in all referance frames that are moving at a constant velocity with respect to one another.
Consistancy of speed principle The speed of light in empty space has the same valur for all obnservers regardless of their velocity
index of refraction The ratio of c to the speed of light in some transparent material v
interference of light
virtual image
Angle of incidents Equals angle of reflection 0i=0r
index of refraction speed of light in vacumm/speed of light in material n=c/v
speed of light in a vacuum (wavelength)(frequency) c=kf
Energy of photon (Planks constant)(Frequency) E=hf
photoelectric effect
