Optics > mirrors

A group of short, introductory experiments to investigate the behaviour of concave and convex lenses using rays of light.

More introductory experiments investigating the behaviour of concave and convex lenses with rays of light.

Identifying that the image in a plane mirror is virtual.

Shows that image and object positions are symmetrical in a plane mirror.

The caustic curve and how the aberration can be reduced by reducing the aperture.

This experiment is well worth the effort of setting it up.
