Henderson's Regular Physics Quizzes

(1998-99 School Year)

 

Suggestions for this week's quiz (Unit 14 Quiz):

This week's quiz on Unit 14 material is tentatively scheduled for Friday, May 14. The quiz will be a one-page quiz, covering both sides of a single sheet of paper. The lens equation and magnification equation will be given. Students will need a straight-edge and a calculator; no other helps will be provided nor allowed. There should be no tricks on the quiz (hopefully, there never are; hard Q's, but no tricks). Review Sections 1-4 of Chapter 30 of the Hewitt book and pp. 19-23 of your packet. Use of the links below should also provide suitable help. Students can expect the following concepts, skills, and problem-types to be assessed on this quiz:

  1. Accurately construct ray diagrams to demonstrate the location of the image of an object in a converging lens or a diverging lens; identify the characteristics (enlarged or reduced in size, inverted or upright, virtual or real) of such images.
  2. Use the lens equation and the magnification ratio to solve problems involving object distances and heights, image distances and heights, and focal lengths for both converging and diverging lenses; interpret the reuslts of such diagrams in order to identify the characteristics (enlarged or reduced in size, inverted or upright, virtual or real) of such images.
  3. Use an understanding of object-image relations to predict the location of an image if given a general region for the location of an image; similarly, to predict the characteristics (enlarged or reduced in size, inverted or upright, virtual or real) of such images. 

     

Sample Quizzes (Unit 14):

There is one sample quiz currently available on the topics of refraction in lenses. The first several questions of the quiz pertain to lenses; several other questions on the quiz pertain to topics discussed inother units.
