Science Biology UNIT 3

HideShow resource information
X-rays
High energy wave from part of the electromagnetic spectrum between gamma rays and ultraviolet rays
1 of 8
Charged-Coupled Devices
Used to record and display an image
2 of 8
CT scanners
A medical scanner that uses X-ray to produce a digital image of any cross-section through the body or 3D image of an organ
3 of 8
Ultrasound waves
Sound wave at a frequency greater than 20,000 Hz
4 of 8
Refraction
The change of direction of a light ray when it passes across a boundary between two transparent substances
5 of 8
Refractive Index
The N of a transparent object is a measure of how much the substance can refract a light ray
6 of 8
Critical Angle
The angle of incidence of a light ray in a transparent substance which produces refraction along the boundary
7 of 8
Total internal reflection
Occurs when the AOI is greater than the CA in a transparent substance. When this occurs the AOR is equal to the AOI
