1
Perspex has a higher refractive index than air. Light entering the Perspexfrom air will
A slow down slightly and bend towards the normal.
B slow down slightly and bend away from the normal.C speed up slightly and bend towards the normal.D speed up slightly and bend away from the normal.
2
When a light ray passing from glass to air strikes the boundary at thecriticalangle, the light rayA is totally internally reflected.B passes through to the air without any change in its direction.
C travels along the boundary between the two surfaces.
D is reflected back along its original path.
3
When a light ray passing from air to glass strikes the glass perpendicularto itsboundary, the light ray willA speed up as it enters the glass and bend away from the normal.
B pass through the glass without any change in its direction.
C be totally internally reflected.D slow down as it enters the glass and bend towards the normal.
4
A light ray strikes a glass surface at a small angle and passes through theglass.The ray emerging from the glass into the air will be
A parallel to the ray entering the glass.
B in the same straight line as the ray entering the glass.C bent towards the normal as it exits the glass.D at right angles to the ray entering the glass.
5
When a ruler is viewed through water it appears bent because lightA slows down as it passes from water to air.B is reflected at the surface of the water.
C is refracted away from the normal as it passes from water to air.
D is refracted towards the normal as it passes from water to air.
6
A fisherman under the water is attempting to spear a fish. The fishermanmust aimA above the apparent depth of the fish.
B directly at the fish as he sees it.

C below the apparent depth of the fish.D to the left of the apparent position of the fish.
