This following applet is Intensity of reflected light and index of refraction

Original project Intensity of reflected light and index of refraction (http://www.phy.ntnu.edu.tw/ntnujava/index.php?topic=205.0)

For normal incident light from air to glass, only 4% light were reflected.
I=(n1-n2)2/(n1+n2)2=(1-1.5)2/(1+1.5)2=1/25=4%
The intensity of reflected light changed with index of refraction and the incident angle.
