PART III-QUESTIONS AND ACTIVITIES 2 Part III- Questions and Activities Question 1 The loudest sound on Earth was by the Krakatoa volcanic eruption in 1883 travelled four times a round the world and was heard 5,000 kilometres miles away and by individuals across 50 diverse geological locations around the world. The shock waves were for earthquake (tsunami) Question 2 When light transmits from one medium into another, its speed alters, which typically makes the light to reflect as well as refract at the underlying boundary. The index of refraction of water is standing at 1.33 (4/3).Thus, as light moves from water to air, it will typically curve away from the existing perpendicular to the underlying surface. Moreover, when the incident angle is relatively bigger than 48 degrees, there is normally total internal reflection. Thus, as your pet goldfish within the aquarium looks up, it will perceive a reflected view of the sides as well as the bottom of the aquarium beyond the 48 degree angle. Conversely, when it is directly above, it views a compressed outlook of the external world. The refraction of light is majorly responsible for numerous illusions namely the shape of things people view beneath water surface is diverse from the reality as well as appearance of the submerged objects that are relatively nearer to the surface that its actual view. Question 3 Utilization of of multiple elements permits for the correction of massive optical aberrations, like the chromatic aberration resultant through the wavelength -dependent index of the underlying refraction in glass. In case the segregation distance is equivalent to the summation

Question 4 The Sun's acoustical waves typically bounce from a single side of the Sun to the supplementary in roughly two hours, which makes the Sun's surface to oscillate. Because these sound waves travel below the Sun's surface, they are normally swayed by the situations inside the Sun.

    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.
