Answer : 

Correct option – (c)

The angle of reflection for the ray reflected from mirror B would be 65°

Very Short Answer Questions :

Question no – (9) 

Answer :

The dark muscular structure in our eyes called Iris gives colour to our eyes.

Question no – (10) 

Answer :

The image of an object stays in our eye for 1/6 th of a second so when his hand comes back and forth repeatedly in that time frame it seems to appear Blurry.

Question no – (11) 

Answer : 

The ray of light will reflect Unlimited Times between the two parallel mirrors which are placed facing each other.

Question no – (12) 

Answer :

If the angle between the incident ray and the reflected ray is 60⁰. We could say that the angle of incidence is half the angle between incident and reflected ray. So diving 60⁰ by 2 we get 30⁰ which is the angle of incidence as well as the angle of reflection.

Question no – (13) 

Answer : 

In plane mirror the image formed by the mirror is at the same distance which the object is from the mirror. Here the distance between the object and the image is 24 cm. So the distance between the object and the mirror would be half of the given distance, that is 12 cm.

Short Answer Questions :

Question no – (14) 

Answer :

When a light gets dispersed it separates into it’s constituents colours, that is the colour it is made up of. One very known example of this phenomenon is the formation of rainbow.

Question no – (16) 

Answer :

The image of this child cannot be obtained on a screen because the images formed by a plane mirror are virtual in nature. They cannot be obtained on a screen.

Question no – (17) 

Answer : 

Nocturnal birds have large cornea and large pupil. These animals need to see in night conditions so this large pupil and cornea allows greater amount of lights to enter their eyes. This makes them see efficiently in dim conditions.

Question no – (18)

Answer :  

Our eyes have consists of Convex lens which forms images on the layer present in the backside of our eyes commonly known as Retina.

Question no – (19) 

Answer : 

When someone suffers from cataract it is due a disturbance in the lens of their eyes. Cataract are commonly cured by replacing the clouded lens with a new artificial lens.

Long Answer Questions :

Question no – (20) 

Answer : 

(a) He need to use at least three plane mirrors to see the object.

(c) He should place the mirrors at 45⁰ of angle with respect to the incident ray.

(e) He will not be able an image if any one of the mirror is removed because the ray must reflect from every mirror to reach his eyes.

Question no – (21) 

Answer : 

The cartoon films that we see are nothing but pictures that are moving at a very fast rate. Since a picture stays in our eyes for 1/6th of a second and as these pictures appears before our eyes at a rate of 24 pictures per second, that is much faster than the persistence of an image in our eyes, we perceive it as a motion or a video.

Question no – (22) 

Answer : 

A kaleidoscope is made up of plane mirrors which are attached in such a way that it makes a prism. It performs on the principle of multiple image formation, that is the light from the object gets reflected between the multiple mirrors which are placed in a certain positions and angle. This results in the formation of different images or pattern of the object that is being reflected.

A kaleidoscope is used for many purposes. Wallpapers and fabric designers often use these kaleidoscope to find out some interesting design and patterns that can be used for our clothes or walls designing.
