Choose the one alternative that best completes the statement or answers the question. 1) A beam of light is incident on one side of an equilatera l prism with a refra ctive index of 1.60 at an o angle of incidence of 50 . When the beam exits the prism on the other side, the angle of refra ction is equal to A) 53.2o B) 46.3o C) 56.5o D) 50.2o 1) E) 39.5o 2) Two m irrors m ake an angle of 30o. A ray of light enters the system and is reflected once off each m irror in a sym m etrica l m anner (the angles of incidence for the two reflections are the sam e). Through what angle is the ray turned? A) 120o B) 36o C) 45o D) 60o E) 90o 2) 3) A sm all underwater pool light is 1 m below the surface of a swim m ing pool. What is the 3) radius of the circle of light on the surface, from which light emerges from the water? (n water = 1.333). A) 0.68 m B) 0.77 m C) 1.13 m D) 1.43 m E) 0.57 m 4) A ra y is incident on an air‐ glass interface and the reflected light is 100% polarized.
