# Lecture Details

For more information about Professor Shankars book based on the lectures from this course,Â Fundamentals of Physics Mechanics,Â Relativity, and Thermodynamics, visitÂ httpbit.ly1jFIqNu. Fundamentals of Physics, II (PHYS 201) Ray diagrams are used to investigate the behavior of light incident on mirrors and lenses. The principle of least time is used to show that all rays from an object in front of a concave mirror focus on the image point if they are not too far from the axis. The experiments describing the breakdown of geometric optics are discussed. 0000 - Chapter 1. Parabolic and Spherical Mirrors 3416 - Chapter 2. Lenses 4334 - Chapter 3. Focal Point 6356 - Chapter 4.
