VCE Physics Unit 2: Option 2.9: How can human vision be enhanced?

Year 11 Research Guide for Unit 2 Physics

Option 2.9: How can human vision be enhanced?

In this option students observe the behaviour of light, investigate reflection and refraction, and apply these concepts to the operation of cameras, lenses, telescopes, microscopes and the human eye.

On completion of this unit the student should be able to apply a ray model of light and the concepts of re reflection and refraction to explain the operation of optical instruments and the human eye, and describe how human vision can be enhanced. 

Behaviour of light
