Solution:  or, x = 1.22 × 5 × 10–3 m = 6.1 mm
∴ x is of the order of 5 mm.

QUESTION: 8

The angular resolution of a 10 cm diametertelescope at a wavelength of 5000 Å is of theorder of     

Solution:

Two-point sources are regarded as just resolved when the principal diffraction maximum of one image coincides with the first minimum of the other.
If one considers diffraction through a circular aperture, this translates into the expression
θ=1.22 λ/d​=1.22×(5000×10−8/10​)=1.22×5×10−6=6×10−6rad
Hence, the closest option is 10−6rad

Solution:

For total internal reflection, QUESTION: 16

Which of the following is not due to total internalreflection?    

Solution:

Difference between apparent and real depth
of a pond is due to the refraction of light,
not due to the total internal reflection. Other
three phenomena are due to the total
internal reflection.

QUESTION: 17

A biconvex lens has a radius of curvature ofmagnitude 20 cm. Which one of the followingoptions best describe the image formed of anobject of height 2 cm placed 30 cm from the lens?

A ray of light is incident at an angle of incidence, i, on one face of prism of angle A (assumed to be small) and emerges normally from the opposite face. If the refractive index of the prism is μ, the angle of incidence i, is nearly equal to: 

Solution:

For normally emerge e = 0
Therefore r2 = 0 and r1 = A
Snell’s Law for Incident ray’s
1 sin i = μ sin r1 = μsin A
For small angle
i = μA
