Problem 32.51

(Ill) A light ray is incident on a flat piece of glass withindex of refraction n as in Fig. 32-24. Show that if theincident angle 0 is small, the emerging ray is displaced adistance d = td(n 1 )/n, where t is the thickness of theglass, 0 is in radians, and d is the perpendicular distancebetween the incident ray and the (dashed) line of theemerging ray (Fig. 32-24).

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Modern Physics Lecture 1: Foundations and Special Relativity Position, Time, and Rotation are all continuous symmetries (discrete symmetries such as reflection do not produce the same results as below):  Invariance in position (changing where in space you perform your experiment) proves momentum conservation  Invariance in rotation (eg. rotating your entire experiment by 90 degrees) proves conservation of angular momentum  Invariance in time (changing when in time you perform your experiment, eg. today vs. tomorrow) proves energy conservation Newtonian Mechanics:  Inertia  F=ma  The force of object 1 on object 2 is equal in magnitude to the force of object 2 on object 1  True in an inertial reference frame
