Title: Intensity of reflected light and index of refraction
Post by: Fu-Kwun Hwang on June 08, 2005, 09:55:19 am
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.
