Study the following four experimental set-ups I, II, III and IV for the experiment, "To trace the path of a ray of light through a rectangular glass slab."

Which of the marked set-ups is likely to give best results (P1 and P2 are the positions of pins fixed on the incident ray)?

(A) I

(B) II

(C) III

(D) IV

Solution

Experiment II will give the best result because it has the largest angle of incidence, due to which the lateral displacement between the incident ray and emergent ray will be maximum.

Hence, the correct option is B.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
