Light and reflection: light rays

Investigate whether light rays always travel in straight lines. Rotate circular walls, each of which has a single opening. Position the walls so that light from a central bulb can be seen by a person outside the walls. Make shadows by placing a range of objects between a light source and a screen. Position shapes to make ...
