D.601.5 nm

Homework Answers

Answer #1

(1) Using a lens formula, we have

1 / d0 + 1 / di = 1 / f

1 / f = 1 / () - 1 / (DF - DL)

1 / f = 1 / () - 1 / [(21 - 2) cm]

f = - 19 cm

The refractive power of a lens should be given as :

P (in dioters) = 1 / f (in meter)

P = 1 / (-0.19 m)

P = - 5.26 D

option-4 : it is correct.

(2) The index of refraction of this material will be given as :

using a formula, we have

n = c / v = (3 x 108 m/s) / (1.5 x 108 m/s)

n = 2

(3) If light of wavelength 600 nm in air which enters a medium with index of refraction, then the wavelength in this new medium will be given as :

we know that, n = c / v = 1 / 2

where, n = refractive index of air = 1

2 = (600 nm) / 1

2 = 600 nm
