P01.17 Right-angled prism refraction The 45-45-90 triangular prism shown in the figure has an index of refraction of 1.56, and is surrounded by air. A ray of light is incident on the left face at an angle of θ = 51.0 ° . The point of incidence is high enough that the refracted ray hits the opposite sloping side. (a) Through which face of the prism does the light exit? (b) Calculate the angle at which the ray exits the prism,

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
