Question

The quantity nt as shown is called the *optical path length* corresponding to the geometrical distance *t* and is analogous to the quantity * δ* as shown, the path difference. The optical path length is proportional to

∫^{2}_{0}^{cm} *n*(*y*)*dy *

(c) Suppose a narrow beam of light is directed into the mixture at a nonzero angle with respect to the normal to the surface of the mixture. Qualitatively describe its path.
