Optics Quizzes & Trivia

Physics was a very interesting class and the chapters about optics were some of the most intriguing. But do you remember anything about them? If you do, then maybe this trivia is your chance to show everyone just how good you can handle yourself.

Optics is the branch of physics which involves the behaviour and properties of what? Because light is an electromagnetic wave, other forms of electromagnetic radiation such as X-rays, microwaves, and radio waves exhibit what? The most common of these, geometric optics, treats light as a collection of rays that travel in straight lines and bend when they pass through or reflect from what? Become an expert in optics and show everyone what you’re really made of. Can you deal with the pressure?

Optics Questions & Answers

What is the difference between Glossy and Lustre?
There are two primary choices when having pictures printed, and this includes glossy and luster. Glossy is smooth like glass, and it is also delicate, but it maintains maximum saturation. Glossy paper elicits a myriad of detail. The colors pop with g
What does the amount of diffraction that the wave undergoes depend on as it passes through an opening in a barrier?
The amount of the diffraction will depend on the wavelength of the incident wave as well as the size of the opening. The more increased the wavelength is, the bigger the diffraction is going to be. There are people who think that waves are fascinatin
