Answers


    1. upwards with respect to principal axis (x-axis) and normal to the principal axis (x-axis) of the mirror/lens are taken as positive
      Explanation:

      CBSE Class 12 Physics Chapter 9 Extra Questions
    1. a converging lens of focal length 100 cm
      Explanation: Combined power, P = P1 + P2 = +2 D + (-1 D) = +1 D
      focal length of combination, f = 1/P = 1/1 = 1m = =100 cm
      Since focal length is positive, it will behave as converging lens.
    1. The phenomenon of splitting of light into its component colours
      Explanation: In dispersion, light of different wavelength deviates by different angles, hence it splits into consituent colors.
    1. complete image will be formed
      Explanation: complete image will be formed at same position as the light rays passing from the transparent portion will still converge at the same points. But less number of rays passes through the lens, hence intensity of image decreases.

    1. sin(incidence angle) > {tex}\frac{1}{{{n_{21}}}}{/tex}, n21=refractive index of medium 2 w.r.t. medium
      Explanation: n21 = refractive index of medium 2 w.r.t. medium 1
      CBSE Class 12 Physics Chapter 9 Extra Questions
      According to Snell’s law, {tex}{sini\over sinr}={n_1\over n_2}=n_{12}={1\over n_{21}}{/tex}
      When i = c, r = 90°
      Hence sinc = {tex}\frac{1}{{{n_{21}}}}{/tex}
      For TIR to take place, i > c hence sin i > sinc (i.e. {tex}\frac{1}{{{n_{21}}}}{/tex})
  1. Given {tex}\theta = 0^\circ{/tex}
    Number of images {tex}n = \frac{{360^\circ }}{\theta } – 1{/tex}
    {tex}= \frac{{360^\circ }}{{0^\circ }} – 1{/tex} = infinite
  2. {tex}\because {\delta _{violet}} > {\delta _{red}}{/tex}
    When the incident violet light is replaced with red light, the angle of minimum deviation of a glass decreases.
  3. Magnifying power, {tex}m = \frac{{{F_0}}}{{{F_e}}}\left( {1 + \frac{{{F_e}}}{D}} \right){/tex}
  4. {tex}\mu = \frac{{\sin \left( {\frac{{A + {\delta _m}}}{2}} \right)}}{{\sin \frac{A}{2}}}{/tex}
  5. The ray diagram of a reflecting type telescope is shown below:
    CBSE Class 12 Physics Chapter 9 Extra Questions
    Since a reflecting telescope has mirror objective, the image formed is free from chromatic aberration.
  6. By the lens maker’s formula
    {tex}\frac{1}{f} = (\mu – 1)\left( {\frac{1}{{{R_1}}} – \frac{1}{{{R_2}}}} \right){/tex}
    Power of lens {tex}P = \frac{1}{f} = (\mu – 1)\left( {\frac{1}{{{R_1}}} – \frac{1}{{{R_2}}}} \right){/tex}
    {tex}\because {\mu _{violet}} > {\mu _{red}}{/tex}
    {tex}\therefore{/tex} Power of the lens will be increased.
  7. As the prism is an equilateral one, A = 60°. Since the ray of light passes symmetrically, the prism is in the position of minimum deviation.
    So, {tex}r = \frac{A}{2} = \frac{{60^\circ }}{2} = 30^\circ {/tex}
    Also i = 49°
    {tex}\therefore \mu = \frac{{\sin i}}{{\sin r}} = \frac{{\sin 49^\circ }}{{\sin 30^\circ }} = \frac{{0.7547}}{{0.5}}{/tex}
    or {tex}\mu = 1.5{/tex}
  8. Given, u = -25cm, v = -50 cm, f = ?
    Using lens formula,
    {tex}\frac{1}{f} = \frac{1}{v} – \frac{1}{u} = \frac{1}{{ – 50}} – \frac{1}{{ – 25}} = – \frac{1}{{50}} + \frac{1}{{25}}{/tex}
    {tex} = \frac{{ – 1 + 2}}{{50}} = \frac{1}{{50}}{/tex}
    {tex}\therefore{/tex}f = 50 cm
    {tex}P = \frac{1}{{f(in\;m)}} = \frac{{100}}{{f(in\;cm)}}{/tex}
    {tex} \Rightarrow P = \frac{{100}}{{50}} = + 2D{/tex}
    Hence, the corrective lens is convex.
  9. CBSE Class 12 Physics Chapter 9 Extra Questions
    For refraction at the convex lens, we have
    u = -20 cm; f1 = 10 cm; v = v1 =?
    Using lens formula, we have
    {tex}\frac{1}{{{v_1}}} – \frac{1}{{( – 20)}} = \frac{1}{{10}}{/tex}
    {tex} \Rightarrow {/tex}v1 = 0 + 20 cm
    The convex lens produces converging rays trying to meet at I1, 20 cm from the convex lens, i.e. 15 cm behind the concave lens.
    I1 will serve as a vertical object for the concave lens.
    For refraction at the concave lens, we have

    For concave lens,
    u = 20 – 5 = 15 cm, f = -10 cm
    As per sign convention
    u = -15
    f = -10
    {tex}\frac{1}{f} = \frac{1}{v} + \frac{1}{u}{/tex}
    {tex}\frac{1}{v} = \frac{1}{f} + \frac{1}{u}{/tex}
    {tex} = – \frac{1}{{10}} – \frac{1}{{15}}{/tex}
    {tex} = \frac{{ – 3 – 2}}{{30}} = \frac{{ – 6}}{{30}}{/tex}
    {tex}\frac{1}{v} = – \frac{1}{5}{/tex}
    v = -5 cm
    i.e. This image is in the side of object 5 cm Right to concave and 10 cm (5 + 5) from convex
    u = + 15 cm v = ? , f = -10cm
    Using lens formula, we have
    {tex}\frac{1}{v} – \frac{1}{{15}} = – \frac{1}{{10}}{/tex}
    v = -30 cm
    Hence, the final image is virtual and is located at 30 cm to the left of the concave lens.
  10. The incident ray is deviated through {tex}\delta = 62^\circ 48′{/tex} when angle i = 40o6′. From the principle of reversibility of light, it is clear from the figure that the emergent ray (for which angle e = 82o42′) is also deviated through the same angle {tex}\delta {/tex}. Now,

    {tex}\delta = (i + e) – A{/tex}
    or {tex}A = (i + e) – \delta {/tex}
    {tex} = 40^\circ 6′ + 82^\circ 42′ – 62^\circ 48′{/tex}
    or A = 60°
    which is the refractive angle of the prism.
    For minimum deviation, i = e
    Hence, {tex}{\delta _{\min }} = 2i – A{/tex}
    or {tex}i = \left( {\frac{{{\delta _{\min }} + A}}{2}} \right){/tex}
    {tex} = \frac{{(51^\circ + 60^\circ )}}{2} = 55^\circ 30′{/tex}
    Which is the angle of incidence at minimum deviation? The refractive index of the material of the prism is given by
    {tex}\mu = \frac{{\sin \frac{{({\delta _{\min }} + A)}}{2}}}{{\sin \frac{A}{2}}}{/tex}
    or {tex}\mu = \frac{{\sin \left( {\frac{{51^\circ + 60^\circ }}{2}} \right)}}{{\sin \frac{{60^\circ }}{2}}}{/tex}
    or {tex}\mu = 1.648{/tex}
