Waves: Transmission and Refraction

Medium

(Originais Teachy 2023) - Question Medium of Physics

When a wave propagates through two different media, it undergoes a change in its angle of incidence and also in its direction of propagation. This phenomenon is known as Snell's Law and can be represented by the relationship between the angle of incidence and the angle of refraction, both of which are related to the speed of light in the two media involved. Which of the following is not a consequence of this law?
a.
Decrease in wavelength.
b.
Change in the direction of the wave.
c.
Increase in wavelength.
d.
Increase in the refractive index of the media involved.
e.
Change in the angle of incidence.

A monochromatic light beam is incident on a transparent glass plate with constant thickness immersed in a liquid. Some classmates are observing a pattern of concentric fringes known as Newton's rings, due to the interference of refracted waves at the glass-liquid interface. Considering the given information: (a) Explain the phenomenon of wave refraction and how it can affect the formation of fringes in Newton's rings. (b) Using Snell's law, calculate the angle of refraction considering that the light enters the glass with an incidence angle of 30¬į and the refractive indices of air and glass are, respectively, 1.00 and 1.52. (c) Based on the results from item (b), discuss the consequences of refraction on the pattern of fringes in Newton's rings and how the student could calculate the radius of one of the fringes.

A student in a science lab is conducting an experiment with a mechanical wave machine. The machine generates waves with a frequency of 50 Hz. She measures the distance between five consecutive crests of the wave and finds it to be 15 cm. Using this information, calculate the speed of the wave. Note: Speed of wave = Frequency x Wavelength. Wavelength = Distance between crests/Number of wavelengths between crests.
