A flat sheet of chrystalline quartz has a thickness of 2.48 cm. It is on top of a flat sheet of fused quartz that has a thickness of 1.50 cm. Light strikes the chrystalline quartz perpendicularly and travels through it and then through the fused quartz. In the time it takes the light to travel through the two sheets, how far (in cm) would it have traveled in a vacuum?

I have solved this question earlier with different figures. Please workout using yours figures. If you need any further help just PM me. If I have helped you please rate me 5 stars first (before you rate anyone else).

A flat sheet of crystalline quartz has athickness of 3.5 cm. It is on top of aflat sheet of diamond that has a thicknessof 2.0 cm. Light strikes the crystalline quartz perpendicularly and travels throughit and then through the diamond. In thetime it takes the light to travel through the two sheets, how farwould it have traveled in a vacuum?

x_{1} = 3.5 cm = 0.035 m

x_{2} = 2 cm = 0.02 m

What you need:

The indices of refraction, n, for quartz and diamond (I'll
usen_{1} and n_{2}, respectively). You'll needto
look these up in your textbook.

Equation for index of refraction, n = c/v, or v = c/n

Equation of motion, x = v t, or t = x/v

t_{total} = t_{1} + t_{2} =

The distance traveled by light in a vacuum,

x = c t = = n_{1}x_{1}
+n_{2}x_{2}

The thickness of a cardboard sheet has a normal distribution
with a mean of 3 cm and a standard deviation of 0.1 cm. 60 of these
sheets are stacked on top of each other to transport to the next
operation in the process.
a) Determine the probability distribution for the total height
of the stack of 60 cardboard sheets. Give the name of the
distribution and its parameter(s).
b) The trailer used to transport the cardboards sheets has a

A box rests on top of a flat bed truck. The box has a mass of m
= 23 kg. The coefficient of static friction between the box and
truck is μs = 0.87 and the coefficient of kinetic
friction between the box and truck is μk = 0.68.
1)The truck accelerates from rest to vf = 18 m/s in t
= 15 s (which is slow enough that the box will not slide). What is
the acceleration of the...

a. Expo Restaurant is considering the purchase of a $4,500,000
flat top grill. The grill has an economic life of 6 years and will
be fully depreciated using the straight-line method. The grill is
expected to produce 250,000 tacos per year for the next 6 years,
with each costing $2 to make and priced at $6. Assume the discount
rate is 7% and the tax rate is 21%. The restaurant expects the
market value of the grill to be $600,000,...

A container has a flat bottom made of aluminum that is 1.18 -cm
thick. The walls are insulated with thick styrofoam. The exterior
bottom of the container is in continual contact with boiling water.
Inside the container, ethanol (ethyl alcohol) is boiling. How long
until the alcohol completely boils away if initially it has a depth
of 5 cm? Assume that the thermal conductivity of aluminum is 220
W/m· ◦C, the latent heat of vaporization of ethanol is 854 kJ/kg,...

A transparent cylindrical tube with radius r = 1.50 cm has a
flat circular bottom and a top that is convex as seen from above,
with radius of curvature of magnitude 2.60 cm. The cylinder is
filled with quinoline, a colorless highly refractive liquid with
index of refraction n = 1.627. Near the bottom of the tube,
immersed in the liquid, is a luminescent LED display mounted on a
platform whose height may be varied. The display is the letter...
