An object is placed 21 em in front of a concave mirror of radius of curvature 20 em. A glass slab of thickness 3 em and refractive index 1.5 is placed close to the mirror in the space between the object and the mirror. Find the position of the final image formed, The distance of the nearer surface of the slab from the mirror is 1.0 cm. The l'rincipal section of a glass prism is an isosceles triangle ABC with AB AC. The face AC is silvered. A ray of light is incident normally on face AB and after two reflections, it emerges from the base BC, perpendicular to it. Find the LBAC of the prism.
