Question

Answered step-by-step

(II) A longitudinal earthquake wave strikes a boundary between two types of rock at a $38^{\circ}$ angle. As the wave crosses the boundary, the specific gravity of the rock changes from 3.6 to 2.8 . Assuming that the elastic modulus is the same for both types of rock, determine the angle ofrefraction.

In physics, electromagnetic radiation (EM radiation or EMR) refers to the waves (or their quanta, photons) of the electromagnetic field, propagating (radiating) through space, carrying electromagnetic radiant energy. It includes radio waves, microwaves, infrared, (visible) light, ultraviolet, X-rays, and gamma rays. Electromagnetic waves of different frequency are called by different names since they have different sources and effects on matter. In order of increasing frequency and decreasing wavelength these are: radio waves, microwaves, infrared radiation, visible light, ultraviolet radiation, X-rays and gamma rays.

In physics, Maxwell's equations are a set of partial differential equations that, together with the Lorentz force law, form the foundation of classical electromagnetism, classical optics, and electric circuits. They underpin all electric, optical and radio such electromagnetic technologies as power generation, electric motors, wireless communication, cameras, televisions, computers, and radar. Maxwell's equations describe how electric and magnetic fields are generated by charges, currents, and changes of these fields. The equations have two major variants. The microscopic Maxwell equations have universal applicability but are unwieldy for common calculations. They relate the electric and magnetic fields to total charge and total current, including the complicated charges and currents in materials at the atomic scale. The macroscopic Maxwell equations define two new auxiliary fields that describe the large-scale behaviour of matter without having to consider atomic scale details. The equations were published by Maxwell in his 1864 paper "A Dynamical Theory of the Electromagnetic Field". In the original paper Maxwell fully derived them from the Lorentz force law (without using the Lorentz transformation) and also from the conservation of energy and momentum.

here we know that the relation with mean velocity and angle sign off theater too. The very way Sign off he tavern is equal to we do Why we went here Theater to is the angle of refraction and t tell one. Is the angle off incidents incident English? No, we know that ISS feed formula V is equal to Underwood. He welcome model is divided by the density Rho So we will put here so we can write Science theater two is equal toe science theater one in tow we to why we even we can write Signed the Devon in tow Underwood veto by we do why? We even will be equal toe Roman by it or to because welcome model is is same here. So we know that Robin is equal to s G specific gravity into a row of water and wrote two is equal to s G expensive gravity into Ruoff water So we can write sine theta one is given which is 38 And here we can write a specific gravity off one in tow. Ruoff water divided by specific gravity Off go into off water. So from here we can write sign off 38 under dude, especially greatly change from 3.6 2.8. And this cancel out so we can write signed. He tattoo is equal to after kill. Building this it is around 0.70 so the value off theater two is equal to sign and worse, 0.70 This will be equal toe around 44 degrees. This is the angle theater to which is around 44 degrees.
