Physics 9B-C Midterm 2 Solutions Cole [1] a) True b) all c) blue d) False e) all f) 0 g) Pascal's h) rise i) double j) decease. [2] Let the thickness of the plate be t . First get the phase difference. Light reflected from the top will be inverted at reflection from the glass which is a shift of π. The ray transmitted into the glass will experience a shift due to the 2 t path difference yielding a phase difference of φ π λ π = ( ) 2 2 n t . For maximal reflection ƒ = m(2π) , but we don't know m . The solution is to see that because the two wavelengths experience successive maxima, the difference in phase between the two is 2π; hence, φ φ π λ π π λ π π 1 2 1 2 2 2 2 2 2 = ( ) ( ) = n t n t Solving for t: 2 1 1 1 1 2 tn λ λ = õ t n = = ( ) 1 2 1 1 1 2 1 52 1 477 1 540 6 1 2 1 1 λ λ . . nm nm = 1334 nm = 1.334 ª 10 -6 m.

### What students are saying

• 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.
