Lenses and Mirror

Mirrors Shiny metallic surfaces that reflect an image
Ray A straight line in which light travels
Medium Any substance through which light travels for example water, air, gasses, liquids, synthetic material
Refraction The bending of light rays as the light travels from one medium to another
Lenses Shiny, clean, metallic sufaces surfaces that refract light
Mirrors reflect the image that appears in front of it
Mirror Reflects light because it is a shiny, metallic surface and flat
Law of Reflection A ray of light will reflect off an shiney, flat surface at the same angle as the ray hits the surface
Law of Reflection An object standing in front of a mirror its reflection will appear to be exactly far behind the reflective surface as the object in front of the mirror
Two hinge mirrors touch As the angle between the two mirrors gets smaller the reflecting increases because the more reflections increase the each reflection is making a reflection
Curved mirrors Obey the law of reflection just as flat mirrors do
Imaged produced by curved mirror Different from the one produced by a flat mirror because of the shape of the mirror
Convex mirror Type of curved mirror that projects image outward
Concave mirror The image is projected inward, downward or to center
Converge When light rays meet
Divergence When light rays spread apart
