Multiple Choice: 64, 65, 66, 67, 68, 69, 70 Short Answer: 30 MULTIPLE CHOICE  The telescope was invented by Galileo Galilei, an Italian inventor. Hans Lippershey, an eyeglass maker in the Netherlands. Gote Reber, a German cabinetmaker. Tycho Brahe, a Danish astronomer. Johannes Kepler, a German mathematician. ANS: B DIF: Easy REF: Section 6.1 MSC: Remembering OBJ: Characterize why telescopes are important astronomical tools. Which of the following was not   discovered by Galileo using a telescope? The Moon has a heavily cratered surface. Jupiter has four moons that orbit around it. Mars has a polar ice cap similar to Earth. The planet Venus goes through phases similar to those of the Moon. The Milky Way is a collection of countless numbers of individual stars. ANS: C DIF: Easy REF: Section 6.1 MSC: Remembering OBJ: Characterize why telescopes are important astronomical tools. The aperture of a telescope is which of the following? the length of the telescope the diameter of the telescope tube the diameter of the primary lens/mirror the radius of the primary lens/mirror the diameter of the secondary mirror ANS: C DIF: Easy REF: Section 6.1 MSC: Remembering OBJ: Define the bold-faced vocabulary terms within the chapter.  Why can a compound lens combat a refracting telescope’s chromatic aberration? Red light is absorbed by a larger amount than blue light. Red light is refracted by a larger amount than blue light, and different types of glass have different indexes of refraction. Blue light is refracted by a larger amount than red light, and different types of glass have different indexes of refraction. Blue light is absorbed by a larger amount than red light. A compound lens cannot combat chromatic aberration. ANS: C DIF: Medium REF: Section 6.1 MSC: Understanding OBJ: Compare and contrast the design, construction, and optical characteristics of reflecting and refracting telescopes. One reason to prefer a reflecting over a refracting telescope is its lack of chromatic aberration. its shorter length for the same aperture size. its lack of an aperture limit. its lighter weight for larger apertures. all of the above ANS: E DIF: Easy REF: Section 6.1 MSC: Remembering OBJ: Compare and contrast the design, construction, and optical characteristics of reflecting and refracting telescopes. Large reflecting telescopes have mirrors that are _________ in shape. spherical parabolic convex hyperbolic cylindrical ANS: B DIF: Easy REF: Section 6.1
