Why in total internal reflection,light ray must pass from denser to rarer medium ONLY?
Asked by pb_ckt | 3rd Mar, 2019, 04:00: PM
Total internal reflection can only happen when light ray travel from denser medium . by the laws of refraction whenever light ray travel from denser to rarer it get away from the normal . So by changing incident angle at some extent we can make light ray travel along the surface of contact, this angle is known as critical angle. If we increase the incident angle from critical angle the light won't get refracted anymore, total internal reflection will takes place.
Diagram is attached.

- A ray of light incident normally on a prism of 60 degree angles .Show the path of the light ray till it emerges out of the prism. The critical angle of glass is 42 degree
- why does the refractionn does not happen in total internal reflection
- Can you explain internal refraction in prism? What is the relationship between critical angle and refractive index?
- What colour of the sun is seen when seen from the surface of the moon?
- Please give the solution
- Draw a labelled diagram to show a deviation of 90° using a right-angled prism.
