Def’n: EM Wave Energy-carrying wave emitted by vibrating charges (often electrons) that is composed of oscillating electric and magnetic fields that regenerate one another.
The EM Spectrum Range of frequencies over which electromagnetic radiation can be propagated.
Change in frequency of a wave of sound or light due to the motion of the source or the receiver. Where f l is the apparent frequency f 0 is the original frequency v is the speed of the wave in the medium v 0 is the speed observer relative to the medium; positive if the observer is moving towards the source v s is the speed of the source relative to the medium; positive if the source is moving away from the observer.
Doppler Effect for EM Waves Observed Frequency v s,r = v s – v r is the velocity of the source relative to the receiver; it is positive when the source and the receiver are moving further apart. λ o is the wavelength of the transmitted wave in the reference frame of the source. Change in Frequency
Def’n: Polarization Aligning of vibrations in a transverse wave, usually by filtering out waves of other directions.
Wavefronts vs. Rays Huygen’s Principle “The wave fronts of light waves spreading out from a point source can be regarded as the overlapped crests of tiny secondary waves – wave fronts are made up of tinier wave fronts”

Types of Reflection Specular/Regular Diffused/Irregular
The open-mesh parabolic dish is a diffuse reflector for short- wavelength light but a polished reflector for long- wavelength radio waves.
Law of Reflection 1.The incident, reflected and normal ray all lie in the same plane. 2.The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection. 1.The incident, reflected and normal ray all lie in the same plane. 2.The angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection.

Sample Problems A concave mirror forms an image, on a wall 3 m from the mirror, of the filament of a headlight lamp 10 cm in front of the mirror. (a) What are the radius of curvature and focal length of the mirror? (b) What is the height of the image if the height of the object is 5 mm? Suppose that in the previous example, the left half of a mirror’s reflecting surface is covered with non-reflective soot. What effect will this have on the image of the filament?

What effect will this have on the image of the filament? The image of a tree just covers the length of a plane mirror 4 cm tall when the mirror is held 35 cm from the eye. The tree is 28 m from the mirror. What is its height?
Refraction Definition: “The bending of light as it passes obliquely from one medium to another.” Cause of Refraction - The change in the average speed of light as enters a different medium” The direction of the light waves changes when one part of each wave slows down before the other part.
Fermat’s Principle of Least Time Pierre Fermat Out of all possible paths that light might travel to get from one point to another, it travels the path that requires the shortest time. Phet
Index of Refraction Describes how much light the speed of light in a material differs from its speed in a vacuum. The index of refraction of vacuum is 1.
Snell’s Law aka Snell-Descartes law aka the law of refraction Follow’s from Fermat’s principle of least time When light slows down in going from one medium to another such as going from air to water, it refracts toward the normal. When it speeds up in traveling from one medium to another, such as going from water to air it refracts away from the normal.
Few Phenomena Due to Refraction Because of refraction, a submerged object appears to be nearer to the surface than it actually is. Because of atmospheric refraction, when the sun is near the horizon, it appears to be higher in the sky. The apparent wetness of the road is not reflection of the sky by water but, rather, refraction of sky light through the warmer and less-dense air near the road surface. Because of refraction, the full root-beer mug appears to hold more root beer than it actually does.
Lenses A prism A curved prism A converging lens
Ray Diagrams Finding the image produced by a THIN CONVERGING LENS. To emphasize that the mirror is thin the ray QAQ’ is shown as bent at the midplane of the lens rather than at the two surfaces and ray QOQ’ is shown as a straight line.
Graphical Method for Thin Lenses A ray through (or proceeding toward) the first focal point F1 emerges parallel to the axis. A ray parallel to the axis emerges from the lens in a direction that passes through the second focal point F2 of a converging lens, or appears to come from the second focal point of a diverging lens. A ray through the center of the lens is not appreciably deviated; at the center of the lens the two surfaces are parallel, so this ray emerges at essentially the same angle at which it enters and along the same line.

Sample Problems a.Suppose the absolute values of the radii of curvature of the lens surfaces in a double convex lens are both equal to 10 cm and the index of refraction is n = 1.52. What is the focal length of the lens? b.Suppose a double concave lens also has n = 1.52, and the absolute values of the radii of curvature of its lens surfaces are also both equal to 10 cm. What is the focal length of this lens? A converging lens has a focal length of 20 cm. Describe the image when an object is placed the following distances from the lens: (a) 50 cm; (b) 20 cm; (c) 15 cm; (d) - 40 cm. Determine the magnification in each case. You are given a thin diverging lens. You find that a beam of parallel ray spreads out after passing through the lens, as though all the rays came from a point 20 cm from the center of the lens. You want to use this lens to form an erect virtual image that is 1/3 the height of the object. (a) Where should the object be placed? (b) Draw a principal- ray diagram. An object 8 cm high is placed 12 cm to the left of a converging lens of focal length 8 cm. A second converging lens of focal length 6 cm is placed 36 cm to the right of the first lens. Both lenses have the same optic axis. Find the position, size, and orientation of the image produced by the two lenses in combination. (Combinations of converging lenses are used in telescopes and microscopes.)
Sample Problems An insect 3.75 mm tall is placed 22.5 cm to the left of a thin planoconvex lens. The left surface of this lens is flat, the right surface has a radius of curvature of magnitude 13 cm, and the index of refraction of the lens material is 1.70 cm. (a) Calculate the location and size of the image this lens forms of the insect. Is it real or virtual? Erect or inverted? (b) Repeat part (a) if the lens is reversed.
