What is the relation between Refractive index and speed of light ?
State the relationship between wavelength of light and the size of the particle causing scattering?
Asked by satyaprakashnayak1999 | 28th Feb, 2015, 07:26: PM
Intensity of scattered light is proportional to the fourth power of the wavelength of the incident light, provided the diameter of the scattering particle are smaller than the wavelength of the incident light.
The scattered intensity is maximum for shorter wavelengths.

- Draw a ray diagram showing refraction of light through a rectangular glass slab
- At night it is difficult to see through a closed glass-window from inside of an illuminated room. But this becomes relatively easy if the lights in the room are switched off. – Why?
- The refractive index of diamond is much greater than that of glass. How does a diamond cutter make use of this fact?
- During refraction of light on which side does the light bends while changing the medium ?
- Why refraction takes place through prism not through glass slab
- Draw and explain the dispersion of white light through a prism. Also, comment on the deviation, wavelength, frequency and speeds of the dispersed light.
- What is lateral displacement
- Prove that sin I=sin e in a glass slab
