Today you will be exploring concepts of light as we finish the unit. After break, we will be starting Relativity and Atomic Physics.
1. Go to: http://www.shs.d211.org/physicsd211/virtualphysics/light/LightInterference/interference.html
Move the three sliders on the bottom of the animation to see the different interference patterns, in both single and double slits.
2. Go to the Multimedia Science School software on the Novell screen.
Physics > Oscillations and Waves > Light > Lesson > Ray Optics
Physics > Oscillations and Waves > Wave Behavior > How Waves Behave
Physics > Oscillations and Waves > Combining Waves > Superposition of Waves
This is for your information. Take notes on these as you see fit, for yourself.
After break there will be an assessment of what you know about light.
