47. Consider the following object in front of a plane mirror. Construct a ray diagram to show how light tavels from the object (arrow) to the mirror and ultimately to the eye; then indicate the portion of the mirror needed in order for the eye to view the image.

48. In the diagrams below, construct refracted rays to indicate the direction which the light rays bend upon crossing the boundary.
If light travels faster in medium 1 than in medium 2, then upon entering medium 2, the light will bend towards from the normal.
If the index of refraction of medium 1 is greater than medium 2, then upon entering medium 2, the light will bend away from the normal.

49. Construct ray diagrams to show where the images of the following objects are located. Dray in the complete image and describe its characteristics (real or virtual, enlarged or reduced in size, inverted or upright). (NOTE: review the ray diagrams for all possible objects locations for each device.)

Concave Mirror: when the object is located between C and F, the image is an inverted real image located beyond C and magnified in size.

Convex Mirrors produce upright virtual images located on the other side of the mirror which are reduced in size.

 

Converging Lens: when the object is located beyond C, the image is an inverted real image located between C and F on the opposite side of the lens and reduced in size.
