Friday, May 10, 2019

Unit #3: Light 

I can explain the differences between reflection and refraction

I can define reflection and refraction

I can define diffraction and scatter 

I can explain what happens when light diffracts and scatters 

Lab: Exploring light: Explain and draw How light acts when it passes through objects 
 (Magnifying glass, mirror, prism, water)
Reflected: Light "bounces" off surface and changed direction
refracted: change in angle and direction of light
diffraction: Light splitting into individual color spectrum 

 

* Natural rainbows= When sunlight passes through clouds and refracts (water).
