How does a camera film work in a camera to produce an image?
Light is focussed onto a film, which contains chemicals that react differently depending on the brightness of the light that shines onto them

How does a CCD produce an image in a digital camera?
CCD has millions of tiny light-sensitive pixels that each produce an electric current when light strikes them-> the signal is then processed+ stored as a digital picture
2 of 8
What is long-sightedness?
When the eye can't focus on objects near the eye
3 of 8
What causes long-sightedness?
1) The eye is too short 2) The eye can't make the lens fat enough to focus the light
4 of 8
What is short-sightedness?
When the eyes can't focus on objects far away
5 of 8
What causes short-sightedness?
1) The eyeball is too long 2) The eye can't make the lens thin enough to focus the light on the retina
6 of 8
What kind of lens would you use to correct long-sightedness? Why?
Convex- so that the light from distant objects is focussed on the retina, instead of in front of it

What kind of lens would you use to correct short-sightedness? Why?
