Chapter 14-15 WebLab#1 “Curved Mirrors and Color Mixing” Part I: Converging Mirrors * Go to the following website: http://microscopy.fsu.edu/primer/java/mirrors/concavemirrors3d/ * Move the slider bar to relocate the object (the cute little owl) closer to and then farther from the mirror. Observe what the image of the owl looks like, both in orientation and in size. Also look at the reflection of the owl on the surface of the mirror….this is what the owl would see if it looked in the mirror. Questions: 1) How does the appearance of the image change as the object is brought closer to the mirror? 2) The black lines represent the paths that light rays take as they move from the owl to the mirror, and then away from the mirror to wherever. Find two paths that move parallel to the optical axis. Where do they go after they reflect? 3) Find two paths that pass through the center of curvature. Where do they appear to go after they reflect?
