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,

Unformatted text preview: relative to the normal of that surface. Express your answer as a negative number if the angle is clockwise relative to the normal, and a positive number for a counterclockwise angle. (c) What is the maximum index of refraction for which the ray exits the prism from the right-hand side?...
