The angle of a prism is 'A'. One of its refracting surfaces is silvered. Light rays falling at an angle of incidence 2A on the first surface returns back through the same path after suffering reflection at the silvered surface. The refractive index μ, of the prism, is :
For a normal eye, the cornea of the eye provides a converging power of 40 D and the least converging power of the eye lens behind the cornea is 20 D. Using this information, the distance between the retina and the cornea-eye lens can be estimated to be:
1. 2.5 cm
2. 1.67 cm
3. 1.5 cm
4. 5 cm
When a biconvex lens of glass having a refractive index of 1.47 is dipped in a liquid, it acts as a plane sheet of glass. The liquid must have a refractive index:
1. equal to that of glass.
2. less than one.
3. greater than that of glass.
4. less than that of glass.
A ray of light is incident at an angle of incidence, i, on one face of a prism of angle A (assumed to be small) and emerges normally from the opposite face. If the refractive index of the prism is , the angle of incidence i, is nearly equal to
A concave mirror of the focal length is placed at a distance of d from a convex lens of focal length . A beam of light coming from infinity and falling on this convex lens-concave mirror combination returns to infinity. The distance d must be equal to:
The magnifying power of a telescope is 9. When it is adjusted for parallel rays the distance between the objective and eyepiece is 20 cm. The focal length of the lenses is :
1. 10 cm, 10 cm
2. 15 cm, 5 cm
3. 18 cm, 2 cm
4. 11 cm, 9 cm
1. Virtual, upright, height = 0.5 cm
2. Real, inverted, height = 4 cm
3. Real, inverted, height = 1 cm
4. Virtual, upright, height = 1 cm
1. Difference between apparent and real depth of the pond
2. Mirage on hot summer days
3. Brilliance of the diamond
4. Working of optical fibre
A ray of light travelling in a transparent medium of refractive index falls on a surface separating the medium from the air at an angle of incidence of 45 °. For which of the following value of , the ray can undergo total internal reflection?
