P. 3848. A point-like light-source is placed to the symmetry axis of a hemisphere shaped piece of glass of radius 20 cm 10 cm away from the plane surface. The refractive index of glass is 1.5. How long does it take for the light ray whose angle of incidence is 60o to travel through the glass, and what is its direction after emerging from the glass. (5 pont)

P. 3851. A diffraction grating is illuminated by light of wavelength 598 nm. The distance between the lines in the diffraction pattern formed on a screen 5 m away from the grating is 2 cm. Find the distance between two rulings. How would the diffraction pattern change if half of the grating parallel to the rulings, or perpendicular to the rulings was covered?
