Shown from above in the figure below is one corner of a rectangular box filled with water. A laser beam starts 10 cm from side A of the container and enters the waterat position x. You can ignore the thin walls of the container.
(a) If x = 22 cm, does the laser beam refract back into the air through side B or reflect from side B back into the water? 1-refract back into air 2-reflect from side B back in the water
Determine the angle of refraction or reflection. ………….. ° (b) Repeat part a for x = 12 cm. refract back into air reflect from side B back in the water
Determine the angle of refraction or reflection. ………… °
(c) Find the minimum value of x for which the laser beam passes through side B and emerges into the air. ……… cm
