Erica Broome Phys104 HW 10 6. The laser beams experience Rayleigh scattering in the air and you can see this scattered light. 8. As light enters the water, it slows down and part of it reflects. 10. If the liquid and diamond have the same index of refraction, then light doesn't change speed on entry to or exit from the diamond and no light reflects from the interfaces between the two. 14. Partial reflections of light from the back of one sheet of glass and from the front of the next sheet of glass interfere with one another. Because the type of interference, constructive or destructive, depends on the spacing between the glass and the wavelength of the light, the interfering light tends to have a colored appearance. 16. Horizontally polarized light reflects more strongly at shallow angles than at right angles. 20. Blue light (and other light near the blue end of the optical spectrum). 28. The incandescent lamp is emitting thermal radiation with a roughly blackbody spectrum. The neon sign is not a thermal light source, so increasing the power

    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.
