Two equilateral-triangular prisms $\mathrm{P}_1$ and $\mathrm{P}_2$ are kept with their sides parallel to each other, in vacuum, as shown in the figure. A light ray enters prism $\mathrm{P}_1$ at an angle of incidence $\theta$ such that the outgoing ray undergoes minimum deviation in prism $\mathrm{P}_2$. If the respective refractive indices of $\mathrm{P}_1$ and $\mathrm{P}_2$ are $\sqrt{\frac{3}{2}}$ and $\sqrt{3}$, then $\theta=\sin ^{-1}\left[\sqrt{\frac{3}{2}} \sin \left(\frac{\pi}{\beta}\right)\right]$, where the value of $\beta$ is ____.

An optical arrangement consists of two concave mirrors $M_1$ and $M_2$, and a convex lens $L$ with a common principal axis, as shown in the figure. The focal length of $\mathrm{L}$ is $10 \mathrm{~cm}$. The radii of curvature of $M_1$ and $M_2$ are $20 \mathrm{~cm}$ and $24 \mathrm{~cm}$, respectively. The distance between $L$ and $M_2$ is $20 \mathrm{~cm}$. A point object $S$ is placed at the mid-point between $\mathrm{L}$ and $M_2$ on the axis. When the distance between $\mathrm{L}$ and $\mathrm{M}_1$ is $n / 7 \mathrm{~cm}$, one of the images coincides with $\mathrm{S}$. The value of $n$ is _______.

Consider a configuration of $n$ identical units, each consisting of three layers. The first layer is a column of air of height $h=\frac{1}{3} \mathrm{~cm}$, and the second and third layers are of equal thickness $d=$ $\frac{\sqrt{3}-1}{2} \mathrm{~cm}$, and refractive indices $\mu_{1}=\sqrt{\frac{3}{2}}$ and $\mu_{2}=\sqrt{3}$, respectively. A light source 0 is placed on the top of the first unit, as shown in the figure. A ray of light from 0 is incident on the second layer of the first unit at an angle of $\theta=60^{\circ}$ to the normal. For a specific value of $n$, the ray of light emerges from the bottom of the configuration at a distance $l=\frac{8}{\sqrt{3}} \mathrm{~cm}$, as shown in the figure. The value of $n$ is ________.

An object and a concave mirror of focal length $f=10 \mathrm{~cm}$ both move along the principal axis of the mirror with constant speeds. The object moves with speed $V_{0}=15 \mathrm{~cm} \mathrm{~s}^{-1}$ towards the mirror with respect to a laboratory frame. The distance between the object and the mirror at a given moment is denoted by $u$. When $u=30 \mathrm{~cm}$, the speed of the mirror $V_{m}$ is such that the image is instantaneously at rest with respect to the laboratory frame, and the object forms a real image. The magnitude of $V_{m}$ is _________ $\mathrm{cm} \,\mathrm{s}^{-1}$.
