Problem 44.

The index of refraction of liquid is 1.9. What is the critical angle for a light ray travelling in the liquid toward a flat layer of air?

Solution

 

Problem 45.

A light ray is perpendicular to the face AB of a glass prism (index of refraction = 1.4). Find the largest value for angle lens so that the ray is totally reflected at face BC. The prism is immersed in air.
