A pond with a total depth (ice + water) of 4.01 m is covered by a transparent layer of ice, with a thickness of 0.134 m. Calculate the time required for light to travel vertically from the surface of the ice to the bottom of the pond.© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 10, 2019, 12:49 am ad1c9bdddf
Velocity of the light in vaccum, c = 3 * 10^8 m/s
Velocity of the light in ice, v = c/n, where n = refractive index of ice = 1.3
Velocity of ...
The expert calculates the time for light to travel vertically. A complete, neat and step-by-step solution is provided.
