Question

When a glass slab is placed on a cross made on a sheet, the cross appears raised by 1 cm. The thickness of the glass is 3 cm. Then the refractive index of glass is :
  1. 32
  2. 2
  3. 3
  4. 32

A
32
B
32
C
3
D
2
Solution
Verified by Toppr

Separation (x) = 1 cm
Thickness (t) = 3 cm
Refractive index is given by the formula,
x=t(11μ)
Substituting the values,
1=3(11μ)
13=11μ
23=1μ
μ=32
The refractive index of the glass slab is 32.
