Physics Light Part 18 (Question 1) Class 8 VIII

## TL;DR

This video discusses the concepts of regular and diffused reflection, the laws of reflection, and the behavior of light in different surfaces.

## Key Insights

• đ Light enables us to see objects, and without light, we cannot perceive our surroundings.
• đģ Regular reflection occurs from smooth surfaces and allows for proper image formation, while diffused reflection occurs from rough surfaces and scatters the reflected rays.
• đĨš The laws of reflection hold true for all surfaces, but the direction of reflected rays differs in diffused reflection due to different normals on rough surfaces.
• đ Different objects exhibit different types of reflection, with mirrors showing regular reflection and other surfaces showing diffused reflection.
• đ Understanding the behavior of light in different surfaces helps explain image formation and the properties of reflection.
• đ¯ī¸ Lateral inversion in mirrors causes left and right to appear reversed.
• đŠī¸ The size of the pupil adjusts based on the amount of light, becoming larger in dim light and smaller in bright sunlight.

Hello friends this video on light part 18 is brought to you by exam fear.com no more fear from exam so with this we have reached towards the end of this lesson so let us look at some of the questions question number one suppose you are in a dark room can you see objects in the room can you see objects outside the room explain so what would happen i...

### Q: Can objects be seen in a dark room?

No, objects cannot be seen in a dark room because light is essential for us to see. Only when there is light present and reflection of light occurs, can we see objects.

### Q: What is the difference between regular and diffused reflection?

Regular reflection occurs from smooth surfaces and allows for proper image formation, while diffused reflection occurs from rough surfaces and scatters the reflected rays, preventing image formation.

### Q: Which objects exhibit regular reflection, and which show diffused reflection?

Mirror exhibits regular reflection, while polished wooden tables, chalk powder, rough cardboard surfaces, and marble floors with water spread over them exhibit diffused reflection.

### Q: What are the laws of reflection?

The laws of reflection state that the incident ray, reflected ray, and normal all lie in the same plane, and the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection.

## Summary & Key Takeaways

• The presence of light enables us to see objects, and without light, objects cannot be seen in a dark room. Reflection of light occurs when light hits an object and the reflected rays reach our eyes.

• Regular reflection occurs from smooth surfaces, while diffused reflection occurs from rough surfaces. In regular reflection, proper image formation takes place, but in diffused reflection, the reflected rays scatter in different directions, preventing image formation.

• The laws of reflection remain consistent for all types of surfaces, but the direction of the reflected rays differs in diffused reflection due to the different normals at each point on a rough surface.
