Mission RL7: Converging vs. Diverging Lenses


Mission RL7 contrasts converging and diverging lenses in terms of their shape and the manner in which they reflect incoming light rays. The mission consists of 40 questions organized into 10 Question Groups. You must answer one question from each Question Group to complete the mission. The learning outcomes for this mission are ...
 

Learning Outcomes

  • The student should be able to identify a lens as being converging or diverging (based on its shape) and relate the shape of the lens to the manner in which light rays refract.
  • The student should be able to apply the basic rules of refraction to converging and diverging lenses by predicting the manner in which light will refract.
