Problem 34.52

A highly reflective mirror can be made for a particularwavelength at normal incidence by using two thin layers oftransparent materials of indices of refraction ni andn2 ( l < < n2) on the surface of the glass (n > n2). Whatshould be the minimum thicknesses d \ and d2 in Fig. 34-29in terms of the incident wavelength A, to maximizereflection?FIGURE 34-29 52.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Chapter 16: Temperature and Heat  Heat: The energy transferred between objects because of a temperature difference o When the transfer of heat between objects in thermal contact ceases, they are in thermal equilibrium  Zeroth law of thermodynamics: if object A is in thermal equilibrium with object B, and object C is also in thermal equilibrium with object B, then objects A and C will be in thermal equilibrium if brought into thermal contact  Celsius scale: o Water freezes at 0 o Water boils at 100  Fahrenheit Scale: o Water freezes at 32 o Water boils at 212  Celsius Fahrenheit conversions  The Kelvin scale is similar to the Celsius scale, except that the Kelvin scale has its zero at absolute z
