Problem: Consider a diamond surrounded by air.A) By how much (in degrees) do the critical angles for total internal reflection differ for red (660 nm) light compared to violet (410 nm) light?

FREE Expert Solution

Critica angle:

θc=sin-1(η2η1)

η2 = ηair = 1

η1 = ηincident 

θc,red - θc,violet = sin-1(1/ηred) - sin-1(1/ηviolet
