Question

A laser beam strikes one end of a slab of material as shown in
the figure below, in which *?* = 50.0

Answer #1

apply snell's law

n1*sin(theta1)= n2*sin(theta2)

1*sin(50) = 1.48*sin(theta2)

sin(theta2) = sin(50)/1.48 = 0.517

theta2 = asin(0.517) = 31.13 degrees

hence the distamce travelled by the light FOR EAC REFLECTION IS 2d

here d is the base of the triangle

then

d = h/tan(31.13) = t/(2*tan(31.13)

t is the thickness of the rod which is not given in the problem.i think this may be given in the figure

2*d = t/tan(31.13)

the no.of internal reflections are N = length of slab/(2d)

N = 50/(2*d)

to calculate d we must know the thickness of the rod t which is not given in the problem.i think this may be given in the figure

A slim beam of white light traveling in air strikes one face of
a slab of silicate flint glass with an angle of incidence of 35
degrees . Within the glass, through what angle, is the portion of
the visible spectrum between 380 nm and 740 nm dispersed? Use
n380nm = 1.68 and n740nm = 1.61.

A beam of light traveling in air strikes a glass slab at an
angle of incidence less than 90°. After entering the glass slab,
what does the beam of light do?
A) It follows the same path as before it struck the
glass.
B) It follows the normal to the glass slab.
C) It bends away from the normal at the point of
contact.
D) It bends closer to the normal at the point of
contact.
E) It slows down.

A light beam strikes
an interface between two materials as shown below. The angle of
incidence =56 degrees and the angle of refraction =39
degrees. If the index of refraction of material 1 is 1.3, what is
the index of refraction of material 2?

A narrow beam of light from a laser travels through air
(n = 1.00)
and strikes point A on the surface of the water
(n = 1.33)
in a lake. The angle of incidence is 52°. The depth of the lake
is 3.6 m. On the flat lake-bottom is point B, directly below point
A.
(a) If refraction did not occur, how far away from point B would
the laser beam strike the lake-bottom?
m
(b) Considering refraction, how far...

(a) A 633-nm He-Ne laser is incident on a slab of an unknown
material. Within the slab, the laser’s wavelength is 329nm.
Determine whether the substance is most likely zircon or diamond.
(b) Suppose a layer of water were placed on top of the slab.
Determine the ratio of thickness of the slab versus the water if
both materials are to contain the same number of waves.

A beam of light is traveling in air and strikes a material. The
angles of incidence and refraction are 61.4° and 46.5°,
respectively. Obtain the speed of light in the material.

A beam of light is traveling in air and strikes a material. The
angles of incidence and refraction are 65.1° and 42.7°,
respectively. Obtain the speed of light in the material.

A beam of light, traveling in air, strikes a plate of
transparent material at an angle of incidence of 56.0e. It is
observed that the reflected and refracted beams form an angle of
90.0e. What is the index of refraction of this material?

A
beam of laser light is emitted 8cm below the surface of a
mysterious liquid and strikes the surface (air above) at a point
7cm from the point directly above the laser. If total internal
reflection occurs what is the refractive index of the mysterious
liquid
