Anyone suspected of cheating will be automatically reported to Student Judicial Affairs. LAST NAME: FIRST NAME: STUDENT ID: (P R I N T) (P R I N T) (LAST 4 DIGITS) Signature: Problem 1. (2 points) When light travels from medium “X” to medium “Y” as shown in the figure: A . both the speed and the wavelength increase B . both the speed and the frequency increase C. both the wavelength and the frequency are unchanged D . both the speed and the wavelength decrease E . both the speed and the frequency decrease Explanation: According to the figure, the index of refraction n of “X” is larger than that of “Y”. Therefore, both the speed and wavelength are increased by a factor of n . The frequency remains constant. Answer A. X Y
