This following applet is Intensity of reflected light and index of refraction
Created by prof Hwang Modified by Ahmed
Original project Intensity of reflected light and index of refraction

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.

• Please feel free to post your ideas about how to use the simulation for better teaching and learning.
• Post questions to be asked to help students to think, to explore.
• Upload worksheets as attached files to share with more users.
Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!
