LIGHT

TLW explore what you see when you mix colors of light.

TLW describe visible light as a part of the electromagnetic spectrum.

TLW compare reflection and refraction of light.

TLW explain why we see the colors of objects.

what is light
What is Light?
  • A form of energy that travels in waves
  • What are two other sources of light on Earth?
  • White light is made up of all colors
  • A light is made up of waves
  • What is a wavelength?
  • A visible spectrum is the seven colors of light that make up white light
  • A spectrum is a range of light waves with different wavelengths and energies
  • The electromagnetic spectrum is a range of all light waves with varying wavelengths, including the visible spectrum (F42 and 43)

how does light travel
How Does Light Travel?
  • Shadows are places where light is blocked
  • It takes the shape of whatever is blocking the light
  • Shadows show that light travels in straight lines or rays
  • Light cannot bend and go around things to create a shadow
  • Index Cards Demonstration

what is reflection
What is Reflection?
  • When light strikes a surface, it bounces off
  • Smooth, shiny surfaces reflect almost all the light reflecting on them
  • Describe objects that reflect light well
  • What happens to light when it is reflected?
    • It changes direction when it is reflected off a surface
  • Mirror demonstration of how rays bounce off a surface and change direction

what is refraction
What is Refraction?
  • Glass of Water/Pencil Demonstration
  • Refraction is the bending of light as it passes from one material to another
  • It happens when light passes through glass, water, light plastic, and other transparent materials
  • What do you think causes refraction?
    • Light traveling at different speeds in different objects
  • Remember: LIGHT RAYS DO NOT CURVE
  • The ray changes direction as it passes from one material to another

types of lenses
Types of Lenses
  • What objects use lenses?
  • Convex
    • Bulge in the middle
    • Makes objects bigger
    • Magnifying glass
  • Concave
    • Curves inward

review
Review
  • What is the electromagnetic spectrum?
  • Why do shadows form?
  • What happens to light when it strikes the surface?
  • Describe the difference in how light is reflected off of smooth and rough surfaces.
  • What is the difference between concave and convex lenses?
  • When does refraction occur?
