  • 02/06/14 P8 Syllabus Light statements
  • 8.1 Reflection of light 1. Describe the formation and characteristics of an optical image seen in a plane mirror. 2. Perform simple constructions, measurements and calculations based on reflections in plane mirrors. 3. Use the law angle of incidence = angle of reflection.
  • 8.2 Refraction of light 1. Describe an experimental demonstration of the refraction of light. 2. Describe, using ray diagrams, the passage of light through parallel-sided transparent material, indicating the angle of incidence i and angle of refraction r. 3. Describe the action of optical fibres and their use in medicine and communications technology.
  • 8.2 Refraction of light 4. State the meaning of critical angle. 5. Identify and describe internal and total internal reflection using ray diagrams.
  • 8.3 Thin converging lens 1. Describe the action of a thin converging lens on a beam of light using ray diagrams. 2. Use the terms principal focus and focal length. 3. Draw and interpret simple ray diagrams that illustrate the formation of real and virtual images by a single converging lens. 4. Draw ray diagrams to illustrate the formation of a real image by a single lens.
  • 8.4 Dispersion of light 1. Describe the dispersion of light by a glass prism.
