A beam of white light is incident on the surface of a diamond at an angle θa.
For α = 45°, find the incident angle θa such that the blue light is totally internally reflected off the bottom surface.
Refraction through Glass and Water Part A = 26.6 degrees Solution Below: A plate of glass with parallel faces having a refractive index of 1.58 is resting on the surface of water in a tank. A ray of light coming from above in air makes an angle of incidence 36.5° with the normal to the [...]Click for More...
If a particle is traveling straight through a material with index of refraction n at a speed v, what is the angle θ between the vector of the propagating Cerenkov radiation and the vector in the direction of the propagating particle?
