Revising Wave Optics with quizzes:
(Fascinating A level wave optics quizzes to train students at the A level preparing for GCE, GCSE and necta.)
In this section, our main topic for discussion is Wave Optics. Here we will be looking at the study of light as a wave. This is another important concept in physics that should not be neglected. Hence, below are ready-made quizzes for you to train yourself in mastering the concept. Before that, let's have a brief description of what we'll be looking at:
A wave is a disturbance that travels from one point to another, carrying the energy of the electromagnetic spectrum. In physics, wave optics, also known as physical optics is the branch of optics that studies interference, diffraction, polarization, and other phenomena for which the ray approximation of geometric optics is not valid.
Wave optics is also the study of various phenomena such as polarization, diffraction, interference, and other occurrences where ray approximation of geometric optics cannot be done. Thus, the section of optics that deals with the behavior of light as a wave.
Wave optics stands as a witness for a famous standoff between two great scientific communities who dedicated their lives to understanding the nature of light. One supports the particle nature of light; the other supports the wave nature.
Sir Isaac Newton stands as an important figure that supported the voice of particle nature of light, who proposed a corpuscular theory which states that “light consists of extremely light and tiny particles known as corpuscles which travel with very high speeds from the source of light to create a sensation of vision by reflecting on the retina of the eye”.
During exams, students are mostly evaluated in this section through written sessions and some practicals. Written sessions include multiple-choice, short answers, and essay questions for students to demonstrate their comprehension of the concept. Click here for more entertaining quizzes.
