Mastering Physics Solutions: A Sparkling Diamond I

On July 30, 2012, in Chapter 22: Reflection and Refraction of Light, by Mastering Physics Solutions

Part A = 1.244*10^8 m/s
Part B = 1.224*10^8 m/s
Part C = δ = asin(sin(theta;a) / nred) – asin(sin(theta;a) / nblue)
Part D = δ = 0.287°

Calculate vred, the speed of red light in the diamond
Calculate vblue, the speed of blue light in the diamond
Derive a formula for δ, the angle between the red and blue refracted rays in the diamond.
Calculate δ numerically for θa = 45°.

Mastering Physics Solutions: Total Internal Reflection Conceptual Question

Mastering Physics Solutions: Total Internal Reflection Conceptual Question

On July 30, 2012, in Chapter 22: Reflection and Refraction of Light, by Mastering Physics Solutions

Part A = BCEF
Part B = E, B, F, C

For which of these scenarios is total internal reflection possible?
For the scenarios in which total internal reflection is possible, rank the scenarios on the basis of the critical angle, the angle above which total internal reflection occurs. At this angle, the refracted ray is at 90 from the normal.
