- 16. 18.2 Interference, Diffraction, and Polarization <ul><li>Key Question: </li></ul><ul><li>What are some ways light behaves like a wave? </li></ul>*Students read Section 18.2 AFTER Investigation 18.2
- 17. 18.2 Interference, Diffraction, and Polarization <ul><li>In 1807, Thomas Young (1773-1829) did the most convincing experiment demonstrating that light is a wave. </li></ul><ul><li>A beam of light fell on a pair of parallel, very thin slits in a piece of metal. </li></ul><ul><li>After passing through the slits, the light fell on a screen. </li></ul><ul><li>A pattern of alternating bright and dark bands formed is called an interference pattern . </li></ul>
- 19. 18.2 Diffraction gratings <ul><li>A diffraction grating is a precise array of tiny engraved lines, each of which allows light through. </li></ul><ul><li>The spectrum produced is a mixture of many different wavelengths of light. </li></ul>
- 20. 18.2 How a Diffraction Grating Works <ul><li>When you look at a diffracted light you see: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>the light straight ahead as if the grating were transparent. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>a " central bright spot ". </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>the interference of all other light waves from many different grooves produces a scattered pattern called a spectrum . </li></ul></ul>
- 21. 18.2 Spectrometer <ul><li>A spectrometer is a device that measures the wavelength of light. </li></ul><ul><li>A diffraction grating can be used to make a spectrometer because the wavelength of the light at the first-order bright spot can be expressed in a mathematical relationship. </li></ul>
- 22. 18.2 Grating Formula = d sin dw L distance between grating lines (m) distance between screen and glasses wavelength of light (nm) d= 13,500 lines/inch = ? lines/m distance between 2 first order bright spots
- 23. 18.2 Polarization <ul><li>Polarization is another wave property of light. </li></ul><ul><li>The fact that light shows polarization tells us that light is a transverse wave . </li></ul>
- 25. 18.2 Polarization <ul><li>Polarization is a vector. </li></ul><ul><li>A wave with polarization at 45 degrees can be represented as the sum of two waves. </li></ul><ul><li>Each of the component waves has smaller amplitude. </li></ul>
- 27. 18.2 Polarization <ul><li>A polarizer is a material that selectively absorbs light depending on polarization. </li></ul><ul><li>A polarizer re-emits a fraction of incident light polarized at an angle to the transmission axis. </li></ul>
- 28. 18.2 Applications of Polarizers <ul><li>Polarizing sunglasses are used to reduce the glare of reflected light </li></ul><ul><li>The LCD (liquid crystal diode) screen on a laptop computer uses polarized light to make pictures. </li></ul>
- 29. 18.3 Special Relativity <ul><li>Key Question: </li></ul><ul><li>What are some of the implications of special relativity? </li></ul>*Students read Section 18.3 AFTER Investigation 18.3
- 30. 18.3 Special Relativity <ul><li>The theory of special relativity describes what happens to matter, energy, time, and space at speeds close to the speed of light. </li></ul>
- 31. 18.3 Special Relativity <ul><li>These effects are observed in physics labs: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Time moves more slowly for an object in motion than it does for objects that are not in motion. This is called time dilation . </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>As objects move faster, their mass increases. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>The definition of the word “simultaneous” changes. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Space itself gets smaller for an observer moving near the speed of light. </li></ul></ul>
- 32. 18.3 Speed of light paradox <ul><li>The theory of special relativity comes from thinking about light . </li></ul><ul><li>A ball thrown from a moving train approaches you at the speed of the ball relative to the train plus the speed of the train relative to you. </li></ul><ul><li>The speed of light appears the same to all observers independent of their relative motion. </li></ul>
- 33. 18.3 Speed of light paradox <ul><li>If the person on the train were to shine a flashlight toward you, you would expect the light to approach you faster. </li></ul><ul><li>The light should come toward you at 3 × 10 8 m/sec plus the speed of the train. </li></ul><ul><li>But Michelson and Morley found experimentally that the light comes toward you at a speed of 3 × 10 8 m/sec no matter how fast the train approaches you! </li></ul>
- 34. 18.3 Consequences of time dilation <ul><li>In the early 1970s an experiment was performed by synchronizing two precise atomic clocks. </li></ul><ul><li>One was put on a plane and flown around the world, the other was left on the ground. </li></ul><ul><li>When the flying clock returned home, the clocks were compared. </li></ul><ul><li>The clock on the plane measured less time than the clock on the ground. The difference agreed precisely with special relativity. </li></ul>
- 35. 18.3 Einstein's formula <ul><li>This equation tells us that matter and energy are really two forms of the same thing. </li></ul> mc 2 Mass (kg) Energy (J) speed of light 3.0 x10 8 m/sec
- 36. 18.3 The equivalence of energy and mass <ul><li>If a particle of matter is as rest, it has a total amount of energy equal to its rest energy . </li></ul><ul><li>If work is done to a particle by applying force, the energy of the particle increases. </li></ul><ul><li>At speeds that are far from the speed of light, all the work done increases the kinetic energy of the particle. </li></ul><ul><li>It would take an infinite amount of work to accelerate a particle to the speed of light, because at the speed of light the mass of a particle also becomes infinite. </li></ul>
- 37. 18.3 The equivalence of energy and mass <ul><li>Einstein’s was able to deduce the equivalent of mass and energy by thinking about the momentum of two particles moving near the speed of light. </li></ul><ul><li>Since the speed of light must be the same for all observers regardless of their relative motion and energy and momentum must be conserved, as the speed of an object gets near the speed of light, the increase in mass must come from energy. </li></ul>
- 38. 18.3 Calculate equivalents <ul><li>A nuclear reactor converts 0.7% of the mass of uranium to energy. </li></ul><ul><li>If the reactor used 100 kg of uranium in a year, how much energy is released? </li></ul><ul><li>One gallon of gasoline releases 1.3 × 10 8 joules. </li></ul><ul><li>How many gallons of gasoline does it take to release the same energy as the uranium? </li></ul>
- 39. 18.3 Simultaneity <ul><li>The two lightning strikes are simultaneous to the observer at rest, but the observer moving with the train sees the lightning strike the front of the train first. </li></ul>
