Sunlight strikes a piece of crown glass at an angle of incidence of 35.8 degrees. Calculate the difference in the angle of refraction between a red (660. nm) and a green (550. nm) ray within the glass. The indices of refraction for the red and the green are n = 1.520 and n = 1...

Two waves in one string are described by the wave functions y1 = 2.90 cos (3.80x - 1.50t) y2 = 3.90 sin (4.80x - 2.10t) a) where y and x are in centimeters and t is in seconds. Calculate the superposition of the waves y1 + y2 at the points x = 1.50, t = 1.40. (Remember that ...
