Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – find all choices before answering. 001 10.0 points The reflecting surfaces of two intersecting flat mirrors are at an angle of 58 ◦ , as shown in the figure. A light ray strikes the horizontal mirror at an angle of 47 ◦ with respect to the mirror’s surface. 58 ◦ 47 ◦ φ Figure is not drawn to scale. Calculate the angle φ . Correct answer: 64 ◦ . Explanation: Basic Concept: θ incident = θ reflected Solution: θ 1 θ 2 φ θ Figure is to scale. The sum of the angles in a triangle is 180 ◦ . In the triangle on the left we have angles θ , 180 ◦- θ 1 2 , and 180 ◦- θ 2 2 , so 180 ◦ = θ + 180 ◦- θ 1 2 + 180 ◦- θ 2 2 , or θ 1 + θ 2 = 2 θ . (1) In the triangle on the right we have angles θ 1 , θ 2 , and φ. 180 ◦ = θ 1 + θ 2 + φ, so θ 1 + θ 2 = 180 ◦- φ. (2) Combining Eq. 1 and 2, we have φ = 180 ◦- 2 θ = 180 ◦- 2 (58 ◦ ) = 64 ◦ . As a matter of interest, in the upper-half of the figure the angles (clockwise) in the triangles from left to right are 43 ◦ , 43 ◦ , and 94 ◦ ; 86 ◦ , 32 ◦ , and 62 ◦ ; 118 ◦ , 15 ◦ , and 47 ◦ ; 133 ◦ , 15 ◦ , and 32 ◦ ; and in the lower-half of the figure the angles (counter-clockwise) in the triangles from left to right are 15 ◦ , 15 ◦ , and 150 ◦ ; 30 ◦ , 32 ◦ , and 118 ◦ ; 62 ◦ , 43 ◦ , and 75 ◦ ; 105 ◦ , 43 ◦ , and 32 ◦ . 002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 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 = 42 ◦ and the point of incidence be located 20 cm from the edge of contact between the two mirrors. nguyen (jmn727) – oldhomework 34 – Turner – (59070) 2 90 ◦ x A B mirror 1 mirror 2 θ A θ B What is the angle of the reflection of ray B (with respect to the normal) on mirror 2 ? Correct answer: 48 ◦ ....
