* Light waves can travel through vacuum with a speed of 3x108 m/s.

* Light waves can pass through vacuum, sound waves cannot. Light waves are transverse waves while sound waves are longitudinal.

* When rays of light fall on smooth surface then bouncing back of light in the same medium in accordance with several laws is called reflection of light.

* A real image is formed when two or more reflected rays intersect each other at a point in front of the mirror. It can be obtained on a screen.

* A virtual image is formed when two or more reflected rays appear to intersect each other at a point behind the mirror. It can‘t be obtained on a screen

* The bending of light rays on passing from one medium to another is called refraction.

* Surface will behave as a smooth surface as long as the surface variations are small as compare to the wavelength of incident light. As wavelength of incident light is very small (4x10-7 m to 8x 10-7 m), therefore every surface (except mirror) acts as a rough surface & scattering of light or irregular reflection takes place.

* Any object in a room can be seen from all the parts of room because surface of the object is rough & it can scatter or reflect light in all directions.

* Laws of reflection are valid for all type of surfaces including spherical surfaces.

* Defects of eye

* Long Sightedness or Hypermetropia- Person suffering from this defect can see distant objects clearly but can‘t see near by object clearly. This defect is corrected by using convex lens

* Shortsightedness or Myopia- Person can‘t see distant objects clearly but can see near by object clearly. It can be corrected by using concave lens.

* Yellow spot- The area of best vision- Yellow spot or macula is a spot located in the centre at the back of eye. It contains maximum number of light sensitive cells. It is a region of colour vision and also the brightest vision.

* Blind spot- The area of no vision- Blind spot is the region of retina just below the yellow spot. Since there are no light receptors hence blind spot is the area of no vision.

* The least distance at which eye can see an object clearly is called near point of the eye. For normal eye it is 25 cm.

* The far point of the eye is the maximum distance at which eye can see clearly. For normal eye it is infinity.
