(8) The normal value for a ________ is approximately 25cm.
(9) Droplets of water split sunlight to form a spectrum known as ______.
(10) ________ can be corrected by using a concave lens of suitable focal length.
(11) Refraction occurs because the ________ of light is different in different medium.

(13) In a Kaleidoscope, the mirrors make an angle of _______ with each other.
(14) The English Braille system uses _________ dots.

For a proper in take of Vitamin A, what kind of food should you eat? Answer
Vitamin A helps to improve eyesight so we should have vitamin A rich diet which includes pumpkin, mangoes, carrot, yam, dairy products, eggs and fish.
What is the cause of refraction? Answer
Refraction is caused by the change of speed of light when it passes from one medium to another.
Stars appear to be slightly higher in the sky than they actually are, Why is this so? Answer
The air in the atmosphere consists of different layers of different densitiesThe density is maximum near the surface of EarthRefraction takes place at the surface of each layerBecause of atmosphere refraction all stars except those directly overhead, appeared slightly above the horizon than they really are.
Distinguish between near point and far point of eye? Answer
The least distance at which the eye can see an object clearly is called the near point of the eyeWhile the far point of the eye is the maximum distance at which it can see clearlyFor a normal eye, it is at infinity.
What are the differences between reflection and refraction of light? Answer
When light ray strike on opaque surface and rebound into the same medium, reflection occursWhile Refraction occurs when a ray of light passes from one transparent to another having different densities.
(a) A concave lens is also known as a diverging lens?
(b) An object seen through a prison appears coloured.
(c) It is not possible to see an object clearly if it is kept too close to the eye? Answer
(a) In the case of concave lens the rays of light do not actually meet but appear to diverge from a point called principle focusIt has the property of bending a ray of light passing through it outwards.
(b) Because beam of light after passing through a prison formed a bend of seven colours called spectrum.
(c)We are able to see an image only if it is formed on the retinaIf the image is focused in form or behind the retina, the image appeared to be blurred.
Distinguish between converging and diverging lens? Answer
A converging (convex) lens is thick in the middle and become thinner at the edges.
A converging lens bends a ray of light passing through it inwards. Diverging lens:
A diverging (concave) lens is thin at the middle and thicker at the edges.
Diverging lens bends a ray of light passing through it outwards.
Why a pencil dipped in water appear bent at the surface of water? Answer
A pencil dipped in water appears bent at the surface of water because of refraction.
What do you mean by lateral inversion?
How will you experimentally locate the image of an object made by a plane mirror?
Draw a ray diagram to locate the image of an object placed 5 cm in front of a plane mirror?
Differentiate between regular and diffused reflection. Draw diagram to show the two types of reflection?
State three uses of plane mirrors
What is Kaleidoscope? State the principle on which it is based?
Distinguish between myopia and hypermetropia?
Explain persistence of vision?
With the help of neat illustrations, describe the principle focus of spherical lenses?
How is rainbow formed?
What is the blind spot? where it is located?
Describe, giving reasons, the path of a ray of light incident on a glass slab takes till it emerges from the slab?
What do you mean by accommodation of the eye? What gives the eye the power of accommodation?
A coin kept at the bottom of a glass bowl full of water appears to be higher than it actually is? With the help of labeled diagram, explain why this happen?
