Refraction Of Light Video Lessons

Concept

# Problem: Problem 8: A flat slab of material (nm =  2.1) is d = 0.35 m thick. A beam of light in air (na = 1) is incident on the material with an angle θa = 55° with respect to the surface's normal. Part (a) Numerically, what is the displacement, D, of the beam when it exits the slab?

###### FREE Expert Solution

The displacement of the beam is expressed as:

$\overline{){\mathbf{D}}{\mathbf{=}}{\mathbf{h}}{\mathbf{s}}{\mathbf{i}}{\mathbf{n}}{\mathbf{\alpha }}}$
