    About the Lecture

    The lecture Snell's Law, Total Internal Reflection, and Dispersion by Jared Rovny is from the course Geometrical Optics. It contains the following chapters:

    • Total Internal Reflection
    • Dispersion

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. The beam would bend more and more to go directly into the medium
    2. The beam would bend more and more to go parallel to the surface of the medium
    3. The beam would stop bending and continue on an unchanging path
    4. A beam cannot get into a medium with an increasing index of refraction
    5. The beam would entirely reflect from the surface
    1. From a lower to a higher index of refraction, refracted light bends towards the normal
    2. From a lower to a higher index of refraction, refracted light bends away from the normal
    3. From a lower to a higher index of refraction, reflected light bends towards the normal
    4. From a lower to a higher index of refraction, reflected light bends away from the normal
    5. From a lower to a higher index of refraction, light always only is transmitted (no reflection)
    1. It can change depending on the color of the light
    2. It is independent of the material through which light travels
    3. It depends on the speed at which light travels before it enters a material
    4. It is a universal constant dependent on the speed of light (c)
    5. It changes with the square of the frequency
    1. White light enters a prism and splits into many colors
    2. A beam of monochromatic light enters a lens and bends
    3. Light moving along a path reflects in such a way that none is transmitted past the boundaries
    4. Two light rays enter a lens and interfere on the other side
    5. A beam of light hits a surface and refracts exactly along the surface
