A beam of white light enters a transparent material. Wavelengths for which the index of refraction is n are refracted at angle u2. Wavelengths for which the index of refraction is n + dn, where dn V n, are refracted at angle u2 + du.

a. Show that the angular separation of the two wavelengths, in radians, is du = -1dn/n2 tan u2.

b. A beam of white light is incident on a piece of glass at 30.0°. Deep violet light is refracted 0.28° more than deep red light. The index of refraction for deep red light is known to be 1.552. What is the index of refraction for deep violet light?

The angular separation of the two wavelengths, in radians, is du = -1dn/n2 tan u2.

The index of refraction for deep violet light.
