Question

A ray of white light traveling
through fused quartz is incident
at a quartz–air interface at angle u1.
Assume that the index of refraction
of quartz is n = 1.456 at the red end of the visible range and n =1.470 at the blue end. If u1 is (a) 42.00°, (b) 43.10°, and (c) 44.00°, is
the refracted light white, white dominated by the red end of the
visible range, or white dominated by the blue end of the visible
range, or is there no refracted light?
