Chapter 29 Question!

Reflection and Refraction

Light that doesn't travel through a mirror, but is returned by the mirrors surface These waves are reflected
What produces only virtual images? Plane mirrors
What image appears to be in a location where light does not really reach? A virtual image
What images are formed by converging light rays and can be displayed on a screen? Real images
What type of mirrors are flat? Plane mirrors
What type of mirror curves outward and has a virtual image? Convex mirror
What are some details of a concave mirrow? It curves inward, and its a real image.
More sound energy is reflected from what type of surface? Rigid and Smooth surface
When waves strike the surface of a transparent medium, like water, at an angle, their direction changes, what happens to the waves? The waves are refracted
What happens to waves when they fall on a transparent medium? The waves are partly reflected and partly refracted
What happens when a wave reaches a boundary between two media? Some or all of the wave bounces back into the first medium
The law of reflection states what? That the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection are equal to each other
A light wave that bounces off a boudary is a reflected wave, and is drawn to what? A reflected ray
