Physics Classroom: Refraction and the Ray Model of Light: The Anatomy of the Eye
Read the Fine Print
Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

This tutorial looks at the anatomy of the eye and how the sense of sight works. This is the first part of a learning module. Subsequent sections cover how images are formed and detected, the concept of accommodation where the eye adjusts its focus, and how farsightedness and nearsightedness are corrected. Includes detailed calculations using physics formulas, e.g., to find the quantitative relationship between the object distance, image distance, and focal length.

Educational Use
Rating
0.0 stars

This page explores the quantitative relationship between work and mechanical energy in situations in which there are no external forces doing work. It is a basic analysis of situations in which mechanical energy is conserved. Examples are given and worked through and some practice problems are given.
