Concept

Problem: A light ray is incident on an flat interface between two media. The first medium has index n1 = 1.2 and the second medium has index n2 = 1.6. The incident angle of the ray is 22° from the normal. What is the angle of the refracted ray?

FREE Expert Solution

We use Snell's law to get the refracted ray.

Snell's law:

η1sin i=η2sin r
