Optics Lectures

Plane Mirror Optics

An introduction to optics and the optics of a plane (flat) mirror.

Curved Mirror Ray Diagrams

Video lecture on drawing ray diagrams and locating images for concave and convex mirrors.

Lens Ray Diagrams

Video lecture on drawing ray diagrams for converging (convex) lenses and diverging (concave) lens.

Optics Calculations

This lecture reviews how to use optic equations to calculate image distances, magnifications, and heights for mirrors and lenses. In addition, these calculations can determine if an image is real or virtual, upright or inverted, and enlarged, equal, or reduced.
