Unit 1 - Quiz 2

2014-15 School Year


The second quiz of the Ray Optics unit will be taken at the end of class on Wednesday, September 24. The quiz will address the following objectives:

  1. The student should be able to distinguish between the two types of curved mirrors and identify the various parts (principal axis, focal point, center of curvature, focal length, radius of curvature) of a curved mirror.

    Physics Classroom Tutorial: Reflection and Mirrors Chapter - Lesson 3a



  2. The student should be able to use the two rules of reflection for curved mirrors in order to construct ray diagrams for curved mirrors and to use such ray diagrams to describe the image characteristics.

    Packet: pp. 17-19

  3. The student should be able to describe how the characteristics of a curved mirror image (think LOST) depend upon the location of the object.
