Geometrical optics

deals with the properties of light like Reflection , Refraction , Dispersion etc .. on the basis of Rectilinear propagation of light ( Ray of light – light travelling along a Straight line ) . Also optical instruments are based on this property .

Physical optics

deals with the nature of light . Light is a form energy which is transferred from a source to eye , either by the motion of material particles or by means of wave disturbance travelling through the medium . Thus following theories of light were proposed :

  • ( i ) Newton’s Corpuscular theory of light ( 1665 )
  • ( ii ) Huygens ‘ wave theory of light ( 1678 )
  • ( iii ) Maxwell’s electromagnetic theory of light ( or radiation ) ( 1873 )
  • ( iv ) Planck’s quantum theory of radiation ( 1900 )
Theories of light

( 1 ) Newton’s corpuscular theory :

says light propagates as a stream of tiny invisible particles called corpuscles . They start from the source and travel in all directions along a straight line with very high speed . When they strike the eye they produce the sensation of vision . Newton attributed different colours of light to different sized particles .

Success : With this theory Newton was able to explain rectilinear propagation of light and laws of reflection .Drawback 🙁 1 ) According to this theory light travels faster in denser medium compared to that in rarer medium . This contradicts the experimental results .( 2 ) It fails to explain interference , diffraction and polarization . Hence the theory was discard
