Chapter 13 Light and Reflection
  • Ms. Hanan Anabusi

2
13-1 Characteristics of Light
  • Objectives
  • Identify the components of the electromagnetic
    spectrum.
  • Calculate the frequency or wavelength of the
    electromagnetic radiation.
  • Recognize that light has a finite speed.
  • Describe how the brightness of a light source is
    affected by distance.

3
Vocabulary
  • Electromagnetic wave
  • Spectrum
  • Wavelength
  • Frequency
  • Speed of light
  • Rays
  • Luminous flux
  • lumens
  • Illuminance

4
Nature of Electromagnetic Waves
  • They are Transverse waves without a medium. (They
    can travel through empty space)
  • They travel as vibrations in electrical and
    magnetic fields.
  • Have some magnetic and some electrical
    properties to them.
  • Speed of electromagnetic waves 300,000,000
    meters/second (Takes light 8 minutes to move from
    the sun to earth 150 million miles at this
    speed.)

5
  • When an electric field changes, so does the
    magnetic field. The changing magnetic field
    causes the electric field to change. When one
    field vibratesso does the other.
  • RESULT-An electromagnetic wave.

  • Waves or Particles?
  • Electromagnetic radiation has properties of waves
    but also can be thought of as a stream of
    particles.
  • Example Light
  • Light as a wave Light behaves as a transverse
    wave which we can filter using polarized lenses.
  • Light as particles (photons)
  • When directed at a substance light can knock
    electrons off of a substance (Photoelectric
    effect)

    electromagnetic waves when placed in order of
    increasing frequency

The Electromagnetic Spectrum
  • More than meets the eye!

11
Examples from Space!
12
Wavelength
  • The distance from one wave crest to the next
  • Radio waves have longest wavelength and Gamma
    rays have shortest!

Listed below are the approximate wavelength, and
frequency limits of the various regions of the
electromagnetic spectrum.

  • All electromagnetic waves move at the speed of
    light.
  • In vacuum light travels at 2.99792458 x 10 8 m/s.
  • In air light travels at 2.99709 x 10 8 m/s,
    slightly slower.
  • For our purposes we will use 3.0 x 10 8 m/s.

    the highest frequency?

Huygens Principle
Huygens principle Every point on a wave front
acts as a point source the wave front as it
develops is tangent to their envelope. Huygens
principle is used to derive the properties of any
wave that interacts with matter. The straight
line perpendicular to the wave front is called a
ray. This simplification is called ray
approximation.

Wave Front and Rays

Illuminance or Brightness
  • Intensity of light depends on
  • Amount of light energy emitted (watts)
  • Distance from the source (m)
  • Light bulbs are rated by their input measured in
    watts (W) and their light output.
  • The rate at which light is emitted from a source
    is called the luminous flux and is measured in
    lumens (lm)
  • Luminous flux is a measure of power output, but
    is weighted to take into account the response of
    the human eye to light.
  • Illuminance is the luminous flux divided by the
    area of the surface and measured in lm/m2

23
Light from a source spreads out in space. The
further from the source the less light per unit
area there will be (the source is not as bright).
The brightness drops off as one over the distance
squared. This is called the inverse square law.
24
Inverse Square Law of Brightness
Expressed mathematically
  • In words
  • Brightness of a source is inversely proportional
    to the square of its distance from you.
  • When the distance doubles, the brightness goes
    down by a factor of four.

25
Brightness and Distance
The Inverse Square Law Scientists have
calculated a theoretical relationship between
brightness and distance. This predicted
relationship between brightness and distance is
called the inverse square law. It says that when
the distance from a light doubles, its brightness
should decrease by a factor of four. The equation
for the brightness, written as B in the equation
below, and the distance from the light, written
as d, is B C/d2 In this equation, C is a
constant that depends on how luminous the light
is (in other words, what "wattage" the light bulb
is). The equation for C is C B d2. You do
not need to understand this equation in detail.
The important point is that the brightness
depends on distance, and that when the distance
doubles, the brightness goes down by a factor of
four.
