### Question 5

Question
Which of these formulae is used to calculate the depth of a boundary using ultrasound?
• depth = speed of wave * transit time
• depth = 2 * speed of wave * transit time
• depth = 0.5 * speed of wave * transit time

### Question 6

Question
True or false? Snell's law states that the sine of the incident angle divided by the sine of the refractive angle is the same for each type of substance (e.g. it is the same in all glass).
• True
• False

### Question 7

Question
Which way would the light ray refract if it entered a medium with a higher refractive index?
• Away from the normal
• Towards the normal

### Question 8

Question
When will total internal reflection occur?
• When the angle of incidence is less than the critical angle

### Question 9

Question
True or false? The equation connecting refractive index and critical angle is n = sin c.
• True
• False

### Question 10

Question
True or false? The principal focus of a converging lens is the point from which light rays spread out.
• True
• False

### Question 11

Question
True or false? The formula to calculate magnification is image height/object height.
• True
• False

### Question 12

Question

• Virtual
• Real
• Diminished
• Magnified
• Upright

### Question 17

Question
True or false? The range of vision is the distance between the near point and the far point; for the human eye, this is between 25cm and infinity.
• True
• False

### Question 18

Question
What is the unit of power of a lens?
• Watt
