This applet will calculate reflected and refracted light intensity according to the incident angle for p-wave and s-wave.

Let's work together. We can help more users understand physics conceptually and enjoy the fun of learning physics!


Refraction satisfy Snell's law : n_1 \sin\theta_1=n_2\sin\theta_2

There are always reflected wave when light touch the boundary between two media.
The intensity for reflected wave \vec{E}'= r_s \vec{E}_s + r_p \vec{E}_p where \vec{E}_s, \vec{E}_p are electric field for s-wave and p-wave.
r_s= \frac{n_1\cos\theta_1 -n_2\cos\theta_2}{n_1\cos\theta_1 +n_2\cos\theta_2} =\frac{\sin(\theta_1-\theta_2)}{\sin(\theta_1+\theta_2)}
and
r_p=\frac{n_2\cos\theta_1-n_1\cos\theta_2}{n_2\cos\theta_1+n_1\cos\theta_2}=\frac{\tan(\theta_1-\theta_2)}{\tan(\theta_1+\theta_2)}
The intensity of refraction wave is the intensity of incident wave minus intensity of reflected wave.
There is no refracted wave when internal reflection occurs.
When \theta=\theta=0, the fraction of reflected wave is \frac{(n_1-n_2)^2}{(n_1+n_2)^2}.
for light from air(n=1) to glass (n=1.5), there are only \frac{(1-1.5)^2}{(1+1.5)^2}=\frac{0.5^2}{2.5^2}=\frac{1}{25}=4% light being reflected.

I just use "send to my email account" method, and open the file from my email message without any problem.
May be there is something wrong with your computer? Try to use another computer to check it again.
