Specific Assistance with Past Units

Click the unit titles below to navigate directly to the desired unit:

| 1-Dimensional Motion | Newton's Laws | Vectors and Projectiles | Equilibrium and Inclined Planes | Momentum | Work, Power, and Energy | Circular, Satellite and Rotational Motion | Special Relativity | Static Electricity | Current Electricity | Waves | Sound and Music | Light and Color | Reflection | Refraction |

 

Unit 12: Light and Color

  • A discussion of the evidence which suggests that light exhibits wave-like behavior. See Lesson 1a of the Physics Classroom.
  • A detailed discussion of the phenomenon of polarization. See in Lesson 1d of the Physics Classroom.
  • A description of the electromagnetic spectrum accompanied by a detailed discussion of the visible light region. See in Lesson 2a of the Physics Classroom.
  • A detailed discussion of the selective absorption, reflection and transmission of light by various materials. The ultimate color appearance of objects is explained in terms of this phenomenon. See in Lesson 2c of the Physics Classroom.
  • A detailed discussion of primary colors of light and color addition principles. See in Lesson 2d of the Physics Classroom.
  • A detailed discussion of complementary colors, primary paints, and principles of color subtraction. See in Lesson 2e of the Physics Classroom.
  • An explanation of light diffraction and a discussion of how this phenomenon leads to blue skies and red sunsets. See in Lesson 2f of the Physics Classroom.
