PHYS 132, WEEK #5, CHAPTER 23 23.7. Model: Light rays travel in straight lines and follow the law of reflection. Visualize: Solve: We are asked to obtain the distance h = x 1 + 5.0 cm. From the geometry of the diagram, tan q i = x 1 10 cm tan r = x 2 15 cm x 1 + x 2 = 10 cm Because r = i , we have x 1 10 cm = x 2 15 cm = 10 cm - x 1 15 cm 15 cm ( ) x 1 = 100 cm 2 - 10 x 1 x 1 = 4.0 cm Thus, the ray strikes a distance 9.0 cm below the top edge of the mirror. 23.11. Model: Use the ray model of light and the law of reflection. Visualize: We only need one ray of light that leaves your toes and reflects in your eye. Solve: From the geometry of the diagram, the distance from your eye to the toe’s image is 2 d = (400 cm) 2 + (165 cm) 2 = 433 cm Assess: The light appears to come from your toes’ image. 23.12. Model: Use the ray model of light and Snell’s law. Visualize: Solve: According to Snell’s law for the air-water and water-glass boundaries, n air sin air = n water sin water n water sin water = n glass sin glass From these two equations, we have n air sin air = n glass sin glass sin glass = n air n glass sin air = 1.0 1.50 ˆ sin 60 ° glass = sin - 1 sin 60 ° 1.5 ˆ ˜ = 35.3 °

23.16. Model: Use the ray model of light. For an angle of incidence greater than the critical angle, the ray of light undergoes total internal reflection. Visualize: Solve: The critical angle of incidence is given by Equation 23.9: q c = sin - 1 n cladding n core ˆ ˜ = sin - 1 1.48 1.60 ˆ = 67.7 ° Thus, the maximum angle a light ray can make with the wall of the core to remain inside the fiber is 90 ° - 67.7 ° = 22.3 ° . Assess: We can have total internal reflection because n core > n cladding . 23.22. Model: Use the ray model of light. Visualize: Solve: Using Snell’s law, n air sin 30 ° = n red sin red red = sin - 1 sin 30 ° 1.52 ˆ = 19.2 ° n air sin 30 ° = n violet sin violet violet = sin - 1 sin 30 ° 1.55 ˆ = 18.8 ° Thus the angular spread is D = red - violet = 19.2 ° - 18.8 ° = 0.4 ° 23.26. Model: Use ray tracing to locate the image. Solve: The figure shows the ray-tracing diagram using the steps of Tactics Box 23.2. You can see from the diagram that the image is in the plane where the three special rays converge. The image is inverted and is located at s ¢ = 20.0 cm to the right of the converging lens.
