Question

With the help of a diagram, show how when light falls obliquely on the side of a rectangular glass slab, the emergent ray is parallel to the incident ray.

Solution

 In the following figure, a light ray travelling in air is incident on the rectangular glass slab. It gets refracted and bends towards the normal. Again, a change in the direction takes place when the refracted ray travelling in glass emerges into air. Here, the light ray bends away from the normal. We see that the incident and emergent rays are parallel to each other. These rays are parallel because the extent of bending on the opposite and parallel faces of slab is equal and opposite. 

 

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
