Detailed Solution for Test: Single Correct MCQs: Ray & Wave Optics | JEE Advanced - Question 49

Focal length of the biconvex lens is 15 cm. A small object is placed at a distance of 30cm from the lens i.e. at a distance of 2f. Therefore the image should form at 30cm from the lens at I1.

But since the ray strike the plane mirror before reaching I1, the image I1 acts as the virtual object for reflection on plane mirror kept at a distance of 20 cm from it.
It should produce an image I2 but as the ray encounters the lens, it gets refracted and the final image is formed at I3. For the last refraction from the biconvex lens, u = 10 cm.

Applying lens formula 

Therefore a real image is formed at a distance of 16 cm from the plane mirror.

It is found that the light emerging from the block to the liquid forms a circular bright spot of diameter 11.54 mm on the top of the block. The refractive index of the liquid is

Applying Snell’s law at point P

n1 sin θ = nsin 90°

Test: Single Correct MCQs: Ray & Wave Optics | JEE Advanced - Question 56

A parallel beam of light is incident from air at an angle a on the side PQ of a right angled triangular prism of refractive index n = √2. Light undergoes total internal reflection in the prism at the face PR when α has a minimum value of 45°.
The angle θ of the prism is

Detailed Solution for Test: Single Correct MCQs: Ray & Wave Optics | JEE Advanced - Question 56

Applying Snell's law at A

Applying Snell's law at B

√2 sin C = 1 × sin 90°

∴ C = 45°    … (ii)

In Δ AMB,  90° + θ + r1 + (90° – C) = 180° (From fig.)
∴ θ = 15°

Test: Single Correct MCQs: Ray & Wave Optics | JEE Advanced - Question 57

A small object is placed 50 cm to the left of a thi n con vex lens of focal length 30 cm. A convex spherical mirror of radius of curvature 100 cm is placed to the right of the lens at a distance of 50 cm.The mirror is tilted such that the axis of the mirror is at an angle θ = 30° to the axis of the lens, as shown in the figure.

If the origin  of the coordinate system is taken to be at the centre of the lens, the coordinates (in cm) of the point (x, y) at which the image is formed are

Detailed Solution for Test: Single Correct MCQs: Ray & Wave Optics | JEE Advanced - Question 57

Therefore object distance for mirror is 25 cm and object is virtual

∴ v = – 50 cm The image I would have formed as shown had the mirror been straight. But here the mirror is tilted by 30°.
Therefore the image will be tilted by 60° and will be formed at A.
Here MA = 50 cos 60° = 25 cm

and I¢A = 50 sin 60° = 25√3 cm
