Light of wavelength 700 nm is incident on the face of a fused quartz prism at an angle of 75 degrees (w/ respect to the normal to the surface). The apex angle of the prism is 60 degrees. Use the value of n=1.46 and calculate the angle (a) of refraction at the surface, (b) of incidence at the second surface, (c) of refraction at the second surface, and (d) between the incident and emerging rays.
