Physics 102: Lecture 16, Slide 3 The Ray Model of Light Since light seems to move in straight lines, why not follow a light wave along a straight line path and simply draw the line to represent how the light will behave This line will be perpendicular to the wave front of the light wave We’ll see how this model helps understand many characteristics of light behavior Physics 113 Dr. Renat Letfullin

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
