# Prism/Optics hw for tomorrow (very urgent pls save my poor soul) watch

1. So there's this task which we can solve and give it to the teacher so we can get an A but I'm not sure if I can solve it correctly because I'm sh*t when it comes to physics but my grade is between an A and a B so I'd be glad if someone could solve these 2 tasks for me so I could check my answers after I'm finished ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ

1st one: It's a plan parallel glass and I need to calculate both of the refractive indexes
There's a mistake in the pic it's 2cm not 2 meter sorry ^^"
2nd: It's a prism and I need to write down what happens and draw the journey of light through the prism

Not sure what you mean by that you need to calculate both of the refractive indexes. I see only one plane glass.
Have a look at these two videos.

Can try out your result using the following simulation.

Oh sorry I was in a hurry and I miswrote it but wow these videos look helpful as heck and so does that site (and it's also fun to mess around with the laser heh)

Thank you so-so much for your help ^^
