It radiates light isotrop ically. A piece of small flat surface is placed at D, which is a distance r away. This piece has a cross section A surf . The surface reflects 1 4 of the light and absorbs 3 4 of the light. As sume the light hitting the various parts of the surface is perpendicular to them. r D Point source What is the timeaveraged energy density hitting the surface? 1. u = r 2 P c 2. u = A surf P 3. u = P A surf 4. u = A surf P c 5. u = P cA surf 6. u = P 4 cr 2 correct 7. u = 4 r 2 P 8. u = P 4 r 2 9. u = 4 r 2 P c 10. u = r 2 P Explanation: Basic Concepts EM Wave Solution: The timeaveraged energy den sity at D is given by u = I c = P 4 r 2 c . Question 2, chap 33, sect 5. part 2 of 2 10 points Find the total timeaveraged force on the surface in terms of the intensity I of the light at D. 1. F = 3 A surf I 2 c 2. F = 7 A surf I 4 c 3. F = 2 A surf I c 4. F = 5 4 4 I c 5. F = 4 I c 6. F = A surf I c 7. F = 7 4 4 I c 8. F = 5 A surf I 4 c correct 9. F = 3 2 4 I c 10. F = 2 4 I c Explanation: The timeaverage force is F = Pressure A surf = F abs + F refl = parenleftbigg 3 4 u + 1 4 2 u parenrightbigg A surf = 5 A surf I 4 c . Question 3, chap 34, sect 2. part 1 of 2 10 points Consider the case in which light ray A is incident on mirror 1 , as shown in the figure. The reflected ray is incident on mirror 2 and subsequently reflected as ray B. Let the an gle of incidence (with respect to the normal) on mirror 1 be A = 46 and the point of homework 12 KIM, JI Due: Apr 13 2008, 4:00 am 2 incidence be located 20 cm from the edge of contact between the two mirrors. 90 x A B mirror 1 mirror 2 A B What is the angle of the reflection of ray B (with respect to the normal) on mirror 2 ? Correct answer: 44 (tolerance 1 %). Explanation: If the angle of the incident ray A is A , the angle of reflection must also be A . Since the mirrors are perpendicular to each other, angle B is equal to 90  A B = 90  A = 90  46 = 44 . Question 4, chap 34, sect 2. part 2 of 2 10 points Determine the angle between the rays A and B. 1. 46 2. 90 3. 4. 180 correct 5. 88 6. 92 7. 44 Explanation: Refer to the figure below. Consider the angle each ray makes with mirror 1 . Ray A makes an angle of A with mirror 1 . This is given by A = 90  A = B . The normal to mirror 2 is parallel to mirror 1 . Thus the angle ray B makes with mirror 1 (assumed to be extended) is B . Both rays make the same angle with respect to mirror 1 . They are parallel, but point in the opposite directions. Therefore the angle between them is 180 ....
