Following Figure Shows Three Transparent Media of Refractive Indices μ 1 , μ 2 and μ 3 . a Point Object O is Placed in the Medium μ 2 . If the Entire Medium on the Right of the Spherical - Physics

MCQ

Following figure  shows three transparent media of refractive indices \[\mu_1 ,    \mu_2   \text{ and }  \mu_3\].  A point object O is placed in the medium \[\mu_2\].  If the entire medium on the right of the spherical surface has refractive index  \[\mu_3\], the image forms at O". In the situation shown,

Options

  • the image forms between O' and O"

  • the image forms to the left of O'

  • the image forms to the right of O"

  • two images form, one at O' and the other at O".

Solution

 two images form, one at O' and the other at O"

Light will be refracted differently in both mediums on the right side. Thus, two images will be formed, one at O' due to refraction from medium μ1 and another at O" due to refraction from medium μ3.μ1

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
