Light Reflection & Refraction

Expert Answer:

A detailed explanation will involve electromagnetic theory.

While we can simply understand by use of Snell's law, n1 sin i = n2 sin r, if i is zero, the only possibility of right hand side to be zero is r must be zero, since n1 and n2 are refrctive indices of the two medium and are nonzero.
