fers one model for problems like this one. In a certain time, light
travels 6.20 km in a vacuum. During the same time, light travels
only 3.40 km in a liquid. What is the refractive index of the liquid? * 8. A ﬂat sheet of ice has a thickness of 2.0 cm. It is on top of a ﬂat
sheet of crystalline quartz that has a thickness of 1.1 cm. Light strikes
the ice perpendicularly and travels through it and then through the
quartz. In the time it takes the light to travel through the two sheets,
how far (in centimeters) would it have traveled in a vacuum? Section 26.2 Snell’s Law and the Refraction of Light 9. ssm A light ray in air is incident on a water surface at a 43° angle of
incidence. Find (a) the angle of reﬂection and (b) the angle of refraction. 10. A ray of light impinges from air onto a block of ice (n = 1.309) at a 600° angle of incidence. Assuming that this angle remains the same, ﬁnd the difference 62‘ m — (91mm in the angles of refraction
en the ice turns to water (n = 1.333). A spotlight on a
oat is 2.5 m above the
water, and the light
strikes the water at a
point that is 8.0 m hori
zontally displaced from
the spotlight (see the
drawing). The depth of the water is 4.0 m. Determine the distance d,
which locates the point where the light strikes the bottom. 12. Amber (n = 1.546) is a transparent brown—yellow fossil resin.

light at an angle of 280° from the vertical. At what angle, measured
from the vertical, does this sunlight strike the surface of the water? 15. Light in a vacuum is incident on a transparent glass slab. The angle
of incidence is 350°. The slab is then immersed in a pool of liquid.

the slab was in a vacuum. What is the index of refraction of the liquid? * 16. A silver medallion is sealed within a transparent block of plastic.
An observer in air, viewing the medallion from directly above, sees the
medallion at an apparent depth of 1.6 cm beneath the top surface of the
block. How far below the top surface would the medallion appear if the
observer (not wearing goggles) and the block were under water? * 17. Refer to Figure 26.4]; and assume the observer is nearly above
the submerged object. For this situation, derive the expression for
the apparent depth: d’ = d(n2/n1), Equation 26.3. (Hint: Use Snell ’s
law of refraction and the fact that the angles of incidence and re—
fraction are small, so tan 9 3 sin 0.) The drawing shows a

which the emergent ray is displaced relative to the incident ray. * 20. Review Conceptual Example 4 as background for this problem.

point A to point B, a dis—
tance of 4.60 m in a mater—
ial that has an index of re—
fraction 721. At point B, the

REASONING We begin by using Snell's law (Equation 26.2: ml sin 61 = r22 sin 62) to find the index of refraction of the material. Then we will use Equation 26.1, the
deﬁnition of the index of refraction (n = c/ v) to ﬁnd the speed of light in the material. SOLUTION From Snell's law, the index of refraction of the material is _ n1 sint91 _ (1.000) sin 63.0°

ASONING Snell’s law will allow us to calculate the angle of refraction 192 B with which e ray leaves the glass at point B, provided that we have a value for the angle of incidence
61, B at this point (see the drawing). This angle of incidence is not given, but we can obtain it by considering what happens to the incident ray at point A. This ray is incident at an angle
61 A and refracted at an angle (92 A. Snell’s law can be used to obtain (92 A, the value for which can be combined with the geometry at points A and B to provide the needed value for
81 B. Since the light ray travels from a material (carbon disulfide) with a higher refractive
index toward a material (glass) with a lower refractive index, it is bent away from the normal
at point A, as the drawing shows. SOLUTION Using Snell’s law at point B, we have . . 1.52 .

the same notation as that in Figure 26.6.
In addition to the text's notation, let t
represent the thickness of the pane, let L
represent the length of the ray in the pane,
let x (shown twice in the ﬁgure) equal the
displacement of the ray, and let the difference in angles (91 7 62 be given by q}. We wish to ﬁnd the amount x by which
the emergent ray is displaced relative to
the incident ray. This can be done by
applying Snell's law at each interface, and
then making use of the geometric and
trigonometric relations in the drawing. SOLUTION If we apply Snell's law (see Equation 26.2) to the bottom interface we obtain
n1 sin 19] = r22 sin 62‘ Similarly, if we apply Snell‘s law at the top interface where the ray emer es, we have n sin 6 = n sin 6 = n sin 19 . Com arin this with Snell's law at the
g 2 2 3 3 1 3 P g bottom face, we see that 711 sin 61 =711 sin 63, from which we can conclude that 63 = (91. Therefore, the emerging ray is parallel to the incident ray. From the geometry of the ray and thickness of the pane, we see that L cos 62 =t, from which it follows that L = t/cos 62. Furthermore, we see that x : L sin ¢ = L sin ((91 —192) .
Substituting for L, we ﬁnd I sin(6’1 —— 62) :L sing—19 =
x (I 2) cost92 Before we can use this expression to determine a numerical value for x, we must ﬁnd the
value of 492. Solving the expression for Snell's law at the bottom interface for 62, we have 1336 THE REFRACTION OF LIGHT: LENSES AND OPTICAL INSTRUMENTS As 11L]. qui d decreases, the critical angle decreases. Therefore, nLiquid Cannot be less than the I
value calculated from this equation, in which BC = 75 .00 and nGIaSS = 1.56. SOLUTION Using Equation 264, we ﬁnd that H Li quid sin 60 = or nLiqwd = nGlaSS sin 19c : (1.56) sin 75.00 = 71 Glass 26. REASONING AND SOLUTION Using Equation 26.4 and taking the refractive index for

. The index of refraction 712 of the liquid must match that of the glass, or 722 = 1.50 . b. When none of the light is transmitted into the liquid, the angle of incidence must be equal
to or greater than the critical angle. According to Equation 26.4, the critical angle 6C is given by sin (9C = nz/nl, where 712 is the index of refraction of the liquid and n1 is that of the glass. Therefore, 1 _ 712 = 111 sin 60 = (1.50) sin 58.00 : 1.27 1f n2 were larger than 1.27, the critical angle would also be larger, and light would be
“ transmitted from the glass into the liquid. Thus, 722 = 1.27 represents the largest index of
1 refraction of the liquid such that none of the light is transmitted into the liquid. .' n = 1.63
28. EASONING The time it takes for the light to travel from A 2
o B is equal to the distance divided by the speed of light in the
substance. The distance is known, and the speed of light 12 in
the substance is equal to the speed of light c in a vacuum
divided by the index of refraction 11] (Equation 26.1). The index of refraction can be obtained by noting that the light is
incident at the critical angle QC (which is known). According to Equation 26.4, the index of refraction n1 is related to the critical angle and the index of
refraction 112 by 121 2 n2 / sin (90 . Chapter26 Problems 1337 SOLUTION The time t it takes for the light to travel from A to B is Distance . d '
