Problem 31

A light beam containing red and violet wavelengths is incident on a slab of quartz at an angle of incidence of 50.00. The index of refraction of quartz is 1.455 at 660 nm (red light), and its index of refraction is 1.468 at 410 nm (violet light). Find the dispersion of the slab, which is defined as the difference in the angles of refraction for the two wavelengths.

Step-by-Step Solution:
Step 1 of 3

Physics 213 // Week 3 Notes PSU Spring Term, 2017 _______ = Formula Chapter 33 Notes (pt. 2) Q: What is snells law A: Snell law shows the relation between angle of incidenes, and the angle of refraction. 2 2= 1 1  Snell’s law (refraction) n1 & n2 = indexes of refraction of medium Note* medium could be air (which has an index of 1) or water (index of 1.33) or many other elements or substances Q: Which way is ray bent based on ray of light hitting medium surface (like water). A: 1. If the indexes (n1 and n2) are the same then there is no direction change. 2. If the next index is greater (n2) then the ray is bent towards the normal. 3. I
