If the object inside the box was made of a material with a refractive index less than 1.5 then the
(A) lateral shift of the rays would have been less.
(B) lateral shift of the rays would have been more.
(C) lateral shift of the rays would remain the same as before.
(D) there is not enough information to comment on any of the above statements
- Greater the refractive index , smaller the angle of refraction
- If we decrease the refractive index, the angle of refraction increases
will be less,
shift will be less
of angle of refraction is becoming equal to angle of incidence
So, the correct answer is (a)
