Webworks Week 3 1. n = c/v, where c = 3 x 10 8 m/s and v is given as 1.1 x 10 8 m/s n = (3 x 10 8 m/s) / (1.1 x 10 8 m/s) = 2.73 2. “θ bench = i + r" 3. “θ mirror = i" 4. Theoretical : θ mirror = ½ θ bench 2 (17.5) = θ bench 35° = θ bench Actual θ bench = 48.5° % discrepancy = (theoretical – actual) / (theoretical) x 100 = [(35 – 48.5) /35] x 100 = 38.6% 5. n core = 1.54 n clad = 1.36 n air = 1.00 sin i crit = (n core /n clad ) i crit = sin -1 (n core /n clad ) = sin -1 (1.36 / 1.54) i crit = 62.0° sin ά crit = (n core / n air ) cos i
