comment Pressure calculations of 2 volumes separated by a membrane
Okay, I understand. I am reading the homework policy now. If I show how I tackled the problem and where I get stuck, is that sufficient to help me get on the right track? I already have a solution, but it is based on a root finding algorithm and I have the feeling there is a better way to approach this.

comment Pressure calculations of 2 volumes separated by a membrane
I assure you that this is not homework ;-) It is a few years since I graduated, but I was just writing down something I am interested in. The formulas I am working out is the system of 4 equations I have written below that. It becomes a bit of a mess when I want to solve for p1 and p2. I have the feeling I am missing a mathematical trick.

Thanks for the incredibly detailed answer! And I am glad I am right with the acceptance-rejection method :)

Thanks for the answer. You understood my question correctly and these are indeed the formula's I am looking for.

comment Does a slide in a projector act as a diffuser?
I didn't snark at you? I just wanted to elaborate on my question. But you already provided a clear answer for which I thank you.

comment Does a slide in a projector act as a diffuser?
In fact the question is as follows: Do I have to raytrace from the light source through the lenses and slide to the screen, or can I assume that I can raytrace from the slide as starting point. So it the object plane the slide or is it the light source?
