# Project #50137 - Physics - Prisms

This assigment has two parts and the required work is highlighted by "EXTENSIONS". I will attach the document to make the assignment more clear.

Part I

1) Suppose we have a prism such that one of the sides can pivot, while the
other side always stays normal to the incoming light. In other words, we
assume that the apex angle (= internal incident angle i) can be varied. Let's
determine D.

Vary the index of refraction of the prism to see how the angle of deviation and
the critical angle change. Extra dense flint glass has an index of refraction of
approximately 1.70. What is the angle of deviation for a 40 degree prism made
from this glass? What is the critical angle for this material?

Part II

1)For an object 3 m below the surface of a liquid, make a plot of the
apparent depth versus the index of refraction of the liquid. Assume an
index of refraction range between 1 and 1.8. For what value of the index
of refraction is the apparent depth equal to the actual depth?
