Homework Help: college physics

Posted by william on Tuesday, September 13, 2011 at 10:18am.

I know you need to use geometry but i don't know how

a room which is h = 9.0 feet tall and r = 12.0 feet wide. Attached to the ceiling is a piece of glass (with unknown index of refraction) which is 2.5 feet thick. A laser pointer in the bottom left corner is aimed so that the ray which reflects off the glass hits the room's bottom right corner.

What is the ray's angle of incidence at the glass?

(b) If the ray which refracts into the glass hits the ceiling 7.7 feet away from the left wall, what is the refracted ray's angle of refraction at the glass?

(c) What is the glass's index of refraction?
