### STUDY QUESTIONS

Physics Solutions Chapter-4 Unit-1

#### Question: 1. (a) What is meant by light energy?

Answer: Light energy is a kind of kinetic energy with the ability to make types of light visible to human eyes. Light is defined as a form of electromagnetic radiation emitted by hot objects like lasers, bulbs, and the sun.

#### (b) How do we seen an object?

Answer: Light from a source like the Sun, falls on the object. The object reflects light in all possible directions. The reflected light from the object reaches our eyes. Our brain receives the information from the eyes making us see the object.

#### Question: 2. (a) By giving three examples define natural sources of light.

Answer: Three examples define natural sources of light:

1. A natural source of light is light that occurs naturally without the involvement of humans.
2. Natural sources of light can come from either an object or a living species.
3. Sun, stars, lightning, jellyfish, fireflies, glowworms, bush fires, angler fish, and other natural light sources are examples.

#### (b) By giving three example define artificial sources of light.

Answer: Bulb, candles, torches are some of the examples of artificial sources of light.

#### Question: 3. (a) Define luminous object. Give examples also.

Answer: Objects that emit or give out light or energy of their own are referred to as luminous objects. The sensation of light is caused by luminous objects. These objects are visible because the light is emitted by them on their own. For example, the Sun, stars, electric bulbs, torches, tube lights, candles, and so on.

#### (b) Define non-luminous object and give examples.

Answer: A non-luminous object is one that does not produce its own light, although it can still reflect light from other sources. The Moon is an example of a non-luminous object; we can only see the Moon because it reflects light from the Sun.

#### Question: 4. Why are the moon and the planets considered as non-luminous objects?

Answer: In our solar system, the sun is the only luminous object. All of the planets and moons reflect light (the light from the sun bounces off them) and absorb light but they don’t emit light, so we say they are non-luminous.

#### (a) Transparent material

Answer: Air, water, clear glass

#### (b) Translucent material

Answer: oily paper, tissue, some plastics,

#### (c) Opaque material

Answer: Plastic, wood, stone

#### (a) Ray of light

Answer: The light traveling in any one direction in a straight line is called a ray of light. A group of light rays given out from a source is called a beam of light.

#### (b) Parallel beam of light

Answer: When Rays from a distant point source travel parallel to each other in a particular direction, it forms a parallel Light Beam.

#### (c) Convergent beam of light

Answer: When light rays from different points constantly keep coming closer together and finally meet at a point, then the light beam is known as a convergent beam of light.

#### (d) Divergent beam of light

Answer: Light rays from a point source of light travel in all directions, moving away with time. Such a beam of light is called a divergent beam of light. Light emitted from a bulb, a candle or a lighthouse are examples of a divergent beam.

#### Question: 7. (a) Define rectilinear propagation of light.

Answer: Rectilinear propagation of light:

1. Rectilinear~ means straight.
2. Propagation~ means travelling of light.

The property of light travelling in a straight lines in a homogenous transparent medium is known as rectilinear propagation of light.

Light does not bend. This is the reason why you are unable to see around a corner.

#### (b) What is meant by a shadow?

Answer: A shadow is a dark area where light from a light source is blocked by an opaque object. It occupies all of the three-dimensional volume behind an object with light in front of it.
