The law of reflection is introduced as we learn about the difference between specular and diffuse reflection and discover the difference between real and virtual images.
Unit 6 Segment K: Reflection The law of reflection is introduced as we learn about the difference between specular and diffuse reflection, and discover the difference between real and virtual images.Premiere Date: July 31, 2018 | Runtime: 00:05:52
-Compare and contrast specular reflection and diffuse reflection.
-Define and use the law of reflection conceptually and mathematically.
-Experiment with a plane mirror noting the location of the image formed and whether it is real or virtual.
diffuse reflection - when light rays strike a rough surface.
law of reflection - this law states that the angle of the incident ray equals the angle of the reflected ray.
reflection - when a wave bounces off a surface when interacting with a material.
specular reflection - when light is reflected off of a shiny or glossy surface.
The Physics in Motion teacher toolkit provides instructions and answer keys for study questions, practice problems, labs for all seven units of study. GPB offers the teacher toolkit at no cost to Georgia educators. It will be available in September 2018. To preorder your teacher toolkit, complete and submit this form to request the teacher toolkit. You only need to submit this form one time to get materials for all seven units of study.
