    We know that not only a plane mirror produces an image of an object in front of it – a convex spherical mirror does, too! Just look at the back of a metal spoon if you don't believe it! This interactive animation shows you how such an image arises, an . . .

    Here you can see what is called a principal ray diagram. We have constructed the image of the candle from the three principal rays, as we explained before. This interactive animation allows you now to move the object relative to the lens, and to obser . . .

    This cartoon shows you a marching band, walking from an area of solid ground where the musicians can walk fast, into a region of muddy ground where they have to walk more slowly. Each row of musicians carries a long pole. Watch what happens when the f . . .

    In this interactive animation, you can explore how the lens of the eye adjusts its thickness. This allows you to see an object in focus as it is moved to different distances from the lens. Drag the object to another position and observe how the lens c . . .

    We have seen in the last video that a convex lens indeed makes an image of our object, the little lit arrow. But how exactly is this image formed? This animation shows you that light rays are going off in all directions from every point of the object. . . .

    This interactive animation is very similar to the one with the convex lens you have used before. Here, too, you can click on the object and drag it to different positions, so you can observe what happens to the image. But now, you are able to move the . . .

    This interactive animation demonstrates how the focal length of a lens changes with its thickness. Like in the previous slide, the lens is shown from the side, and light rays are coming in from the left. Click on the arrows on the lens and pull to mak . . .
