Big Idea: Waves carry information without causing a permanent change on the intervening medium. More info...
Class Practical: A simple and elegant experiment to measure the wavelength of light using a fine diffraction grating.
Demonstration: Exploring the diffraction pattern produced from white light.
Class practical: Students use a diffraction grating as a tool for observing the spectra from a variety of light sources.
Demonstration: Interesting diffraction effects seen in shadows.
Demonstration: A ray of light bends as it passes through a region of changing refractive index.
Demonstration: Investigating the formation of real images.
Demonstration: A set of experiments to introduce real and virtual images formed by a convex lens.
Demonstration: A light ray can be seen in water coloured with fluorescein.
Demonstration: Shows rays forming an image in the smoke with a lens and a mirror, as well as the effects of chromatic and...
Demonstration: Shadows form on a screen when objects interrupt the light from a lamp.
Class Practical: Making rough measurements to check the validity of a lens formula.
Class practical: A model camera using lamps, to investigate depth of field and magnification.
