Q. 8

# Three thin prisms

Given that

The refractive indices of the crown glass for red, yellow and violet rays are μr, μy and μv respectively

for the flint glass are μ’r, μ’y and μ’v respectively

Now,

Total deviation for yellow ray produced by the prism combination is

δv-δr= δcy-δfy+δcy = 2δcy-δfy = 2(μcy-1)A-(μfy-1)A

Similarly, the angular dispersion produced by the combination is

δv-δr= 2(μvc-1)A-(μvf-1)A

A for net angular dispersion to be zero,

δv-δr = 0

2(μvc-1) A-(μvf-1) A=0

2(μvc-1) A=(μvf-1) A

B for net deviation in the yellow ray to be zero,

δy= 0

2(μcy-1) A-(μfy-1) A=0

2(μcy-1) A=(μfy-1) A
