# liang (al28299) – HW20 – doria – (SP1-11) This print-out should have 8 questions.

Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page hahahah...all choices – ﬁnd waves change wavelengths only not before answering.

4. wavelength of light 005 (part 1 of 3) 10.0 points Light of wavelength 597 nm in vacuum passes through a piece of silica (index of refraction 1.417). Find the speed of light in silica. Answer in units of m/s. 006 (part 2 of 3) 10.0 points What is the wavelength of this light in silica? Answer in units of nm.

refractive index of light=c/v 3e8/2.5e8=1.2

frequency when going through a diff medium. 001 10.0 points= n1λ1 n2λ2 If the speed of light through material Z is so 5.97e-7=1.417(x) 2.5 × 108 m/s, what is this material’s index of answer is 421.3126nm

refraction? The speed of light in a vacuum is 3 × 108 m/s.
the index of refraction is the speed of light in a vacuum in ratio with the speed in a medium. c/v=3e8/x=1.533 x=3e8/1.533 x195694716.2427

002 (part 1 of 2) 10.0 points The index of refraction of crown glass for violet light is 1.533, while for red light it is 007 (part 3 of 3) 10.0 points 1.511. Calculate the frequency of the light. What is the speed of violet light in crown Answer in units of Hz. glass? 3e8/5.97e-7=5.0251e14 Answer in units of m/s. 008 10.0 points X Y

003 (part 2 of 2) 10.0 points What is the speed of red light in crown glass? 1/1.511*3e8=19854 Answer in units of m/s.

004 10.0 points Light rays bend as they pass from air into water at an angle (not 90 degrees). This is refraction. draw an imaginary Incident 'normal' parallel to the ray mediums. the since the Normal 1. freq of light angle of refraction is less

When light travels from medium “X” to medium “Y” as shown in the ﬁgure: 1. both the speed and the wavelength increase 2. both the speed and the frequency increase 3. both the speed and the wavelength decrease 4. both the wavelength and the frequency are unchanged 5. both the speed and the frequency decrease

than the angle of incidence, the light must be going into a slower Air medium. when slowed, Water the wavelength decreases and speed decreases.

Refracted ray Which quantity doesn’t change when light refracts? 1. frequency of light 2. index of refraction of the material 3. average speed of light
