How do you compare the angle of incidence and the angle refraction?

The angles of light are the result of the law of sines: sine( incidence angle)/speed of incidence = sine(refraction angle)/ speed of refraction


Why is it necessary for the angle of refraction to be equal to the angle of incidence when the angle of incidence is zero?

when the angle of refraction is zero you still need an angle of incidence because it still reflects back.


The angle of reflection is equal to the .......?

The angle of incidence


How does the angle of refraction compare to the angle of incidence measured from the normal when going from air to water?

Angle of refraction will be less compared to the angle of incidence in this case.


When angle of incidence is equal to angle of refraction?

The second angle of incidence is equal to the angle of refractions.


What is the relationship between the angle of incidence and the angle of of refraction known as?

The COEFFICIENT of Refraction.


When the angle of refraction is 20 what is the angle of incidence?

40


If the angle of incidence increases and the indexes of refraction stay the same what happens to the angle of refraction?

The angle if refraction also increases.


Does the index of refraction equal the angle of refraction?

Not exactly, the angle of refraction = the angle of incidence, which means the ratio of sine of angle of incidence to the sine of angle of refraction is constant for two media. That is sin i /sin r = constant , and this constant is called refractive index


What are the terms related to refraction of light?

terms realated to refraction of light are * interface * incident ray * refracted ray * point of incidence *normal *angle of incidence * angle of refraction *angle of deviation


Does the angle of incidence always equal the angle of refraction?

Usually not.


Why is the angle of incidence greater than the angle of refraction based on the magic pencil activity?

The angle of incidence is greater.
