  • examples of total internal reflection

    Total Internal Reflection One of the qualities of any optically transparent material is the speed at which light travels within the material, i.e., it depends upon the refractive index n of the material. The index of refraction is merely the…

  • What are some examples of refraction of light?

    “The process of bending of light as it passes from air into glass and vice versa is called refraction of light.”Mirage, bent pencil in a glass of water, rainbow, and sunset are some examples of refraction of light. Why does…

  • Types of Lenses

    Lenses are the pieces of transparent material of which one or both sides are spherical. It is any transparent material having two surfaces, of which at least one is curved. Lenses refract light in such a way that an image…

  • types of optical fiber

    Optical fibres are thread structure made of glass and plastic in which light travel by total internal reflection. optical fibres are hair size threads through which light passes by total internal reflection, There are three types of optical fibre:(1) Single…

  • What are 7 Basic Properties of Light?

    What is light? ¬†Light is a form of energy which is given by luminous objects. The Sun, bulb, candle, etc. are luminous objects. Other objects which do not give out light are called non-luminous objects. Light can pass through transparent…

  • Why diffraction grating have closely spaced rulings?

    A diffraction grating is a glass plate having a large number of close parallel equidistant slits mechanically ruled on it.A diffraction grating is used to study the diffraction effects of light. Since the phenomenon of diffraction is found to be…

  • What is Difference Simple Microscope and Electron Microscope?

    The Basic difference is that a Simple microscope operates easily, while an Electron microscope does not operate easily. More Differences Between a Simple microscope vs Electron Microscope are given below. Keep Reading … Properties of Simple/ light microscope They are…

  • Interference of Light Examples

    Interference of light is defined as: “When two or more light waves having the same frequency, same wavelength and same amplitude meet together in a medium at a point, they cancel or enhance the effect of each other at that…

  • Reflection of Light Examples in daily life

    What is reflection of light? When light from one medium falls on the surface of another medium, it bounces back in the same medium such that the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection. There are two…

  • Difference between Resolution and Magnification in tabular form

    Resolution and magnification are two terms used in Optics which are related to each other. The Basic difference between resolution and magnification is that Resolution is the ability to separate two closely placed objects while magnification is the mean of…
