SAMPLE EXAM FOR CH's 22, 23, 24
 

1]         For each part below, an object 25.0 cm tall is located 40.0 cm in front of the mirror.

 

     A)   For an image formed at q = +120 cm, calculate the height of the image and state

            whether it is real or virtual and whether it is erect or inverted. 

 

Answer:  -75 cm,   real, inverted

 

B)    For an image formed at q = - 5.0 cm,
calculate
the radius of curvature of the mirror  

      and  state whether it is concave or convex.

 

Answer:  -11.4 cm   , convex

 

2]         Two thin lenses, each with a focal length,  f = +20 cm, are placed 50 cm apart.  An  object  
             15 cm tall is placed 60 cm in front of the first lens.  Where is the final image formed for the system? 

 

Answer:  No image is formed,  q would be at infinity.

 

 

5]         A screen is separated from a double-slit source by a distance of 1.20 m.  The distance between
the slits is 0.030mm.  If light of wavelength 633 nm is incident on the slits, at what angle would you
find the 30th order bright fringe?

 

Answer:  39.3 degrees


6]  A submarine is 300 m horizontally out from the shore.  It is 100 m below
the surface.  A laser beam sent out from the sub strikes the surface of the water
at a point 210 m from the shore.  The beam exiting the water strikes the top of a
tower standing right at the water's edge on the shore.  Determine the height of
the tower.


Answer:  107 m
