Question

A. Stay the same. Glass is tightly against the cardboard.                                                                B. Increase. Light bends away from normal line entering glass.                                                        C. Increase . Light bends toward normal line entering glass.                                                      D. Decrease. Light bends away from normal line entering glass.                                                  E. Decrease. Light bends toward normal line entering   .                      

 

Problem 5.2
A piece of cardboard is placed between a very
small light bulb and a screen. A block of glass is
placed in front of the screen as shown in the
side view diagram at right.
