A very narrow beam of white light is incident at 40.40 onto the top surface of a rectangular block of flint glass 11.8 cm thick. The indices of refraction of the glass for red and violet light are 1.637 and 1.671, respectively.
Calculate the dispersion angle (i.e., the difference between the directions of red and violet light within the glass block)
