An isosceles prism of angle is made of crown glass. A beam of white light is incident at a small angle on this prism. The other flint glass isosceles prism is combined with the crown glass prism such that there is no deviation of the incident light (i)Determine the angle of the flint glass prism (ii)Calculate the net dispersion of the combined system a) b) c) d) 3537

 (a) (i)When angle of prism is small and angle of incidence is also small, the deviation is given by Net deviation by the prism is zero. So,  Or Here, are the refractive indices for crown and flint glass respectively Hence, and This gives Hence, angle of flint glass prism is Negative sign shows that flint glass prism is inverted with respect to the crown glass prism (ii)Net dispersion due to the two prism is    Net dispersion is Next Question :

A light beam is travelling from Region I to Region IV (refer figure). The refractive index in Region I, II, III and IV are respectively. The angle of incidence for which the beam just misses entering Region IV is a) b) c) d)
