Physics 8B 12 – Reflection and Refraction rev 4.0 1 12 – Reflection and Refraction 1. After class one day, you find a sheet of paper on the floor with the drawing shown below. Evidently, a student was doing an experiment that used mirrors and a light source, but the student apparently forgot to indicate the locations of the mirrors on the paper. On the diagram, indicate the locations and orientations of the mirrors and explain how you determined the arrangement of the mirrors used by the student. Light source 2. An observer and a cube are located in front of a large mirror as shown in the top view diagram below. The cube has a narrow stripe down the middle of two sides. Mirror Stripe 1 Observer Stripe 2 a) From the location shown, could the observer see the image in the mirror of stripe 1? Explain. b) From the location shown, could the observer see the image in the mirror of stripe 2? Explain. Physics 8B 12 – Reflection and Refraction rev 4.0 2 3. A mirror 0.6 m tall is mounted in a dressing room. The bottom of the mirror is 0.8 m above the floor. You stand 1 m away from the mirror. You are 1.5 m tall (ASSUME your eyes are at this level.)
