Question

Two identical prisms 1 and 2, each with angles of 30o, 60o and 90o are placed in contact as shown in figure. A ray of light passes through

                                                     

The combination in the position of minimum deviation and suffers a deviation of 30o. if the prism 2 is removed, then the angle of deviation of the same ray is;

Solution

Correct option is

Equal to 15o

 

 

As A is halved, so δ is also halved.
