I Got my Bachelor's of Science majoring in Physics with a minor in Math at Purdue University in 2017 and since then have been attending Graduate school working on my PhD at the University of Oregon doing research in Gravitational Wave Astrophysics.
A speck of dirt is embedded 3.50 cm below the surface of a sheet of ice $(n = 1.3092)$. What is its apparent depth when viewed at normal incidence?
A person swimming 0.80 m below the surface of the water in a swimming pool looks at the diving board that is directly overhead and sees the image of the board that is formed by refraction at the surface of the water. This image is a height of 5.20 m above the swimmer. What is the actual height of the diving board above the surface of the water?
A small tropical fish is at the center of a water-filled, spherical fish bowl 28.0 cm in diameter. (a) Find the apparent position and magnification of the fish to an observer outside the bowl. The effect of the thin walls of the bowl may be ignored. (b) A friend advised the owner of the bowl to keep it out of direct sunlight to avoid blinding the fish, which might swim into the focal point of the parallel rays from the sun. Is the focal point actually within the bowl?
The glass rod of Exercise 34.22 is immersed in oil $(n = 1.452)$. An object placed to the left of the rod on the rod's axis is to be imaged 1.20 m inside the rod. How far from the leftend of the rod must the object be located to form the image?
Repeat Exercise 34.24 for the case in which the end of the rod is ground to a $concave$ hemispherical surface with radius 4.00 cm.
An insect 3.75 mm tall is placed 22.5 cm to the left of a thin planoconvex lens. The left surface of this lens is flat, the right surface has a radius of curvature of magnitude 13.0 cm, and the index of refraction of the lens material is 1.70. (a) Calculate the location and size of the image this lens forms of the insect. Is it real or virtual? Erect or inverted? (b) Repeat part (a) if the lens is reversed.
