The two mirrors are placed so that they form a 90-degree angle. Light from the object (F) strikes the reflecting surface of the first mirror and is reflected to the second mirror. The second PRISMS The image forming and transmitting parts of any optical instrument are lenses or prisms or mirrors, or some combination of these three elements. The other parts are there just for your convenience. They hold the optics in their proper place, keep unwanted light out of the instrument, and give you a means of pointing and adjusting the optical system.

It would then show double refraction. When the glass cools t o about 400" or 5OO"C, it goes to the annealing furnace and is cooled to room temperature over a period of 7 to 14 days, depending on the size of the melt. When the glass reaches room temperature, workers withdraw the pot from the furnace and break it away from the glass. If they are lucky, they will have one big lump of optical quality glass weighing about 1200 pounds. But, that kind of luck is rare. Usually they will find a few mediumsized pieces.

Silver reflects about 95 percent of the light that falls on it and absorbs the other 5 percent. But, a surface that works by total internal reflection does not absorb any light-it reflects all of the light. Light passes through more glass in a prism than it does in a mirror, but the absorption in good optical glass is fairly small. A reflecting prism will absorb less light than a mirror would use for the same purpose. By using prisms instead of mirrors, we get a brighter image. -Prism 3-8 diopter.
