Unit 1 - Quiz 1

2014-15 School Year


The first quiz of the Ray Optics unit will be taken at the end of class on Friday, September 12. The quiz will address the following objectives:

  1. The student should be able to state the law of reflection, identify angles of incidence and angles of reflection, and use some basic geometry to predict an angle between a light path and a mirror or a normal line for a dual-mirror system.

    Lab: RO1 - The Law of Reflection
    Minds On Physics: Reflection and Mirrors Module - Assignment RM1
    Physics Classroom Tutorial: Reflection and Mirrors Chapter - Lesson 1c



  2. The student should be able to explain what an image is and how it is formed and use a diagram to demonstrate how a plane mirror image is formed.

    Lab: RO2 - Images

  3. The student should be able to use a ray diagram to analyze a physical situation, answering such questions as how does light get from the object to the mirror to an observer's eye, what portion of a mirror is required to view a particular image, and what images can a person see in a plane mirror from a given location.

    Packet: pp. 7-10
