Unformatted text preview: a) Halite b) Quartz c) Calcite For each mineral: (1) Calculate the speed (or maximum and minimum speeds if more than one) that light can travel through the minerals. Be sure to include units with value that you calculate. (2) Calculate the angle of refraction (in degrees) for each index of refraction, assuming that a single light ray impinges on a flat surface of the mineral at an angle of 50º after passing through air, for which n = 1. (3) Derive the critical angle for each index of refraction for the minerals. 1...
