Angle of incidence ( i ) =Reflection: Reflection For light reflecting off a plane mirror (flat, smooth, shiny): Mirror Angle of reflection (r) Angle of incidence ( i ) =Refraction: Refraction Air Perspex Incident Ray Emergent Ray Normal Normal Refracted RayRefraction: Refraction As light passes from a less optically dense material into a more optically dense material it moves towards the normal. As light passes from a more optically dense material into a less optically dense material it moves away from the normal. Less optically dense More optically dense Incident Ray Normal Less optically dense More optically dense Emergent Ray NormalTotal Internal Reflection: Total Internal Reflection Incident Ray Refracted Ray Reflected Ray When the angle of incidence is small (less than 42°) most of the light emerges from the Perspex and is refracted away from the normal. A tiny amount of light is reflected at the interface. i <42°Total Internal Reflection: Total Internal Reflection Incident Ray When the angle of incidence is 42° most of the light is refracted at 90° from the normal (along the interface). Some light is reflected at the interface. 42° is described as the critical angle. 42° 90°Total Internal Reflection: Total Internal Reflection Incident Ray Reflected Ray When the angle of incidence is greater than 42° no refraction takes place. All of the light is reflected. This is known as total internal reflection. i >42°Total Internal Reflection: Total Internal Reflection You do not have the permission to view this presentation.
