Geometrical Optics

by Jared Rovny


Physical concepts explained in an understandable way

This course covers the motion of rays of light, as understood geometrically. Jared Rovny will discuss reflection and refraction using Snell's law, different sorts of mirrors and lenses, as well as how to construct ray traces and deduce the location of images from mirrors and lenses.

Learn how rays of light act when incident on barriers, how to think about the meaning of rays in geometric ray diagrams as well as how to find and describe the images made by mirrors and lenses in terms of the image position and magnification.
