(c), (d) As the Sun moves southward and upward at 50.0°, we may regard the corner of the window as fixed, and both patches of light move northward and downward at 50.0 ° . * P35.52 (a) 45 0 . ° as shown in the first figure to the right. (b) Yes If grazing angle is halved, the number of reflections from the side faces is doubled. FIG. P35.52 P35.53 Horizontal light rays from the setting Sun pass above the hiker.
