The due time is Central time. 001 (part 1 of 1) 10 points Consider two ways that light might hypothet- ically get from its starting point S to its final point F by being reflected by a mirror at ei- ther point A or point B. Since light travels at a fixed speed in air, the path of the least time will also be the path of the least distance. S F A B C 44 cm 44 cm 23 cm 23 cm Show by calculation that the path SBF is shorter than the path SAF and record the difference in the path lengths. Answer in units of cm. 002 (part 1 of 2) 10 points Consider the case in which light ray A is in- cident 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 θ A = 41

    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.
