Physics Chpt 29 Kohl

What happens when waves interact with matter? The can be reflected, transmitted or a combination of both.
Can waves that are transmitted be refracted? No
Waves that strike a surface that is transparent, like water, at an angle, there direction changes are called what? Refracted
What happens when waves fall on a transparent medium? Waves are partly reflected and partly refracted
What is reflection? Reflection is the bouncing back of particles or wave that strikes a boundary between two media.
What is the law of reflection? The law of reflection states that the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection are equal to each other.
What is an incident wave? A light wave that strikes a boundary.
What is a reflective wave? A light wave that bounces off a boundary.
What is a normal? A normal is a line drawn perpendicular to the point where the incident ray strikes the barrier.
What kind of images do plain mirror produce? Virtual images
What are the shapes that plain mirrors can be grouped by? Plane, convex, and concave
What is an image? An image is a likeness or reproduction of an object.
What is the difference between virtual and real? Virtual images in a mirror are images that seem to be in or behind the mirror and are always upright. Real images are formed by converging light rays and can be displayed on a screen. These images are inverted.
What is an echo? An echo is a reflective sound.
What happens when light is incident on a rough surface? It is reflected in many directions.
