2. Why does an orange look a different colour to a banana?
3. Why can’t we see anything without a light source?
4. How does a periscope work?
Now challenge yourself - complete the science worksheet below.
A periscope lets you look around walls, corners or other obstacles. Submarines have periscopes so that people inside can see what is on the surface of the water.
A periscope is a useful example of the law of reflection at work. It’s important that your mirrors are placed at a 45° angle, because light always reflects away from a mirror at the same angle that it hits it. In a periscope, light from an object strikes the top mirror at 45° and bounces off at the same angle. This sends light directly down the tube and onto the lower mirror. This mirror, also at a 45° angle, reflects light directly to your eye.
