Homework Answers

Answer #1

1. The angle of reflection and the angle of incidence should be equal. Or in other words, the reflected ray travels at the same angle as it incident.
The angle of reflection is 300.
2. The angle of reflection depends on the angle of incidence. The angle of reflection is equal to the angle of reflection.
The comment is false. (b).
3. The angle of incidence is measured with respect to a normal to the surface. Thus a ray which incident perpendicular to the surface, the angle of incidence is zero.
The answer is (b)
4. The angle of refraction and the angle of incidence is related by the Snell's law as
ni sin i = nr sin r
Where i is the incident angle and r is the refracted angle.
So this is true
The answer is (a) true
