Overview: 
In the mid1800s, Scottish physicist James Maxwell thought something interesting was going on with electric fields, so he decided to assemble a set of equations that held true for all electromagnetic interactions. In this episode of Crash Course Physics, Dr. Shini talks to us about Maxwell's Equations and how important they are to our understanding of Physics. She discusses the ray model, reflection and refraction, ray diagrams, and converging and diverging lenses.

Science SC2015 (2015) Grade: 912 Physics  10 ) Plan and carry out investigations that evaluate the mathematical
explanations of light as related to optical systems (e.g., reflection,
refraction, diffraction, intensity, polarization, Snell's law, the inverse
square law).
