Optics B/C

Postby SenseiSushi » September 6th, 2016, 1:53 pm

Short Event Description: Teams must participate in an activity involving positioning mirrors to direct a laser beam towards a target. Teams must also be tested on their knowledge of geometric and physical optics.

What is the index of refraction for a vacuum?

For both plane and convex mirrors, no matter where the object is located, there is a (real/virtual) image that is (upright/inverted).
