HIGH SCHOOL ASSIGNED RESEARCH QUESTIONS lease use bullet points and do not just copy paste a paragraph from the Internet. These notes should take you almost an hour. They should be simple and easy to study, concise, and clear. Watch videos and read multiple sites and do the research so you understand what you are writing about and INCLUDE a GRAPHIC for EVERY SINGLE NOTE. Add your notes to the Google Doc Week 7: LIGHT I (by Tuesday at 6pm)
Week 7 Light I:
What is light? Describe light as we see it. What exactly is light composed of?
Is there a “speed of light” and what are its properties? What is thought to happen to a substance as it approaches the speed of light?
What is “Einstein’s Theory of Relativity” and why is it important?
What is “ray approximation”?
What is the electromagnetic spectrum? What are its components starting with the lowest to highest frequencies?
Which end of the electromagnetic spectrum has the greatest energy? Lowest? Which part has visible light?
What happens to the visible light rays that enables us to see something as white? Black? A color?
What is meant by “adding light colors”? And “subtracting light colors”?
What is the difference between a “real image” and a “virtual image”?
What is the difference between reflected light and refracted light?
What is the difference between the angle of incidence and the angle of reflection?
What is the difference between converging light rays and diverging light rays?
