4 t “t (b) TVs and computer monitors are made up of pixels, which are colored dots very closely spaced together. For someone with a near
point of 25 cm, how close does the Rayleigh criterion predict that the dots need to be, in order to make viewing individual pixels
completely impossible without the aid of a magnifying device? Assume a maximum pupil diameter of 9 mm and a minimum visible
wavelength of 390 nm. (The actual pixel spacing needed will not be as tight as your answer predicts, due to smaller average pupil
diameters, larger wavelengths for the light emitted by pixels, and the fact that the opticallysensitive molecules in your retina are not inﬁnitely small.) (3. V». \, 22. A W a MMNWW‘N'W" "" L A I 2" “mm”.. Kl [Mei/’3 _‘/_m:'..l:.";:7;a.,t. Riv/t 1 G? 9 J i ’25 Liv.“ ' 5m..." .4 if rpm...”

d 2x 7/ dx k has a solution (meaning a function for which the equation is true) of the form x(t) = Ae"’/T cos(a)t) . That solution represents, for example, a spring with an oscillating mass hanging from it, where the amplitude of oscillation continually decreases due to air
resistance. For homework, and for a problem on a previous exam, you represented x(t) as a complex exponential, I(—l+iw) x(t) = A6 7
took derivatives, and plugged them into the equation. Doing so allowed you to get an equation with both real and imaginary parts to
it. Setting the real parts of the left hand side equal to the real parts of the right hand side, and similarly with the imaginary parts,
allowed you to ﬁnd two equations. Those two equations then allowed you to solve for the values of rand a) (the oscillation frequency and decay time) in terms of the given quantities k, m, and 7/. (That’s all assuming you did the problem correctly, of
course.) For this problem, go through the same procedure, but stop after you get to the two equations you could use to solve for r and a). News”)
