Solve: Using Snells law at the airwater boundary, air air liquid liquid sin sin n n = air liquid air liquid sin sin37 1.0 1.37 sin sin 26 n n = = = Assess: As expected, n liquid is larger than n air . 23.22. Model: Use the ray model of light. Visualize: Solve: Using Snells law, air red red sin30 sin n n = 1 red sin 30 sin 19.2 1.52  = = air violet violet sin30 sin n n = 1 violet sin30 sin 18.8 1.55  = = Thus the angular spread is red violet 19.2 18.8 0.4 = =  = 23.58. Model: Use the ray model of light. Solve: (a) Using Snells law at the airglass boundary, with being the angle of refraction inside the prism, air sin sin n n = sin sin n = Considering the triangle made by the apex angle and the refracted ray, ( ) ( ) 1 2 90 90 180  +  + = = Thus ( ) ( ) 1 1 1 2 2 sin sin sin...
