# For which ray of light incident on 3 different media with angle of incidence 60 for all and angle of refraction is 50,45 and 40 respectively willthes 3 media show identical behaviour?

Sat November 17, 2012
No, the three media will not show identical behavoiur. The velocity of light will be different in all the three mediums.
From Snell's Law n1 sin i = n2 sin r
For same value of angle of incidence n 2 sin r=constant
refractive index of that medium is greater whose angle of refraction is smaller.
n= C/V
C= speed of light in air
V= speed of light in medium
hence medium with angle of refraction 400 will have minimum velocity.
