wave propagation in di-electric medium
« on: April 24, 2007, 11:55:19 am »
hello every one,

i need some information regarding the wave propagtion from air medium to some dielectric medium. i am mainly concerned with the angle to which it differs.

Thanks

You need to have the index of refraction (n)
and use Snell's Law to find the angle of refraction.
n1 sin?1=n2sin?2
