New Exhibit: Reflections

New Exhibit- Reflections has been added to Fun Science Gallery

Mirrors have cultural and scientific significance from ancient times from the earliest known manufactured mirrors of Turkey to mirrors found in Egypt, Mesopotamia and China in use for approximately 4000 years ago. A mirror is a wave reflector. Light consists of waves, and when light waves reflect off flat surface of a mirror, the waves retain the same degree of curvature and vergence, in an equal but opposite direction. This property, called specular or regular reflection distinguishes a mirror from objects that diffuse light, breaking up the wave and scattering it. Thus, a mirror can be any surface in which the texture or roughness of the surface is smaller (smoother) than the wavelength of the waves.
The exhibit comprises of a spherical cut section with mirrors fixed on its tangential plane. Alight  from the centre of sphere  will always hit these mirrors fixed in tangential plane at 90º.As per laws of reflections an incident ray  starting from the centre of sphere will reflect back to the centre.
Visitor is asked see the mirrors from centre of the spherical cut section over which the mirrors have been mounted. The light rays from the visitor will hit all the mounted mirrors at zero incident angle and therefore as per laws of reflection gets reflected back at centre. Due to this visitor sees his/her own image in all the mirrors. Fig. 3 shows an image formed in “Reflections” exhibit and fun to experience.
