Module 10

Objectives:

In this module, students will review the ray approximation and the laws of reflection and refraction.  After completing the module, they will be able to use the mirror  and lens equations to predict the position and magnification of real and virtual images formed mirrors and lenses with spherical surfaces.  Students will be able to draw ray diagrams.
