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?
|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?
|What type of mirrors are flat?
|What type of mirror curves outward and has a virtual image?
|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
|When waves interact with matter, what can happen?
|They can be reflected, transmitted, or a combination of both
|Waves that are transmitted can be what?
