A student performs an experiment. On her desk, she directs a light ray at the flat surface of an unknown transparent material at an angle to the normal of 47 degrees. The light ray enters the material at an angle to the normal of
A ray of light travels from Liquid helium (n=1.03) into a second material. You gradually increase the angle of incidence until, at 83.6°, the light no longer passes into the second material. What is the index of refraction of the
Light is incident from water onto a flat transparent slab of material, at an angle of 48.8° with the normal. The reflected ray and the refracted ray are perpendicular to each other. What is the index of refraction of the
Light is incident from air onto a flat transparent slab of material, at an angle of 62.2° with the normal. The reflected ray and the refracted ray are perpendicular to each other. What is the index of refraction of the
Linearly polarized light is incident on a piece of polarizing material. What is the ratio of the transmitted light intensity to the incident light intensity when the angle between the transmission axis and the incident electric
An unknown material is submerged in a fluid with an index of refraction of 1.33. If a ray of light is incident on the block at 45-degrees and the angle of refraction is 30-degrees. What is the index of the unknown material?
The drawing shows a ray of light traveling through three materials whose surfaces are parallel to each other. The refracted rays (but not the reflected rays) are shown as the light passes through each material. A ray of light
A ray of light with wavelength 589 nm passes through an unknown material with a velocity of 1.94 x 10^8 m/s. What is the material? I think this problem has something to do with Snell's law, but there is no given angle of
