A compound lens system consists of two converging lenses, one at x = -20.0 cm with focal length f1 = +10.0 cm, and the other at x = +20.0 cm with focal length f2 = +8.0 cm . An object 1.00 centimeter tall is placed at x = -50.0 cm.
What is the location of the final image produced by the compound lens system? Give the x coordinate of the image.
Part A = 24.09°
Part B = 60.97°
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?
Use these constraints and the equation for θ from Part A to determine which of the following substrate materials is best suited to giving you the greatest precision in determining particle velocity
