  • a. Snell&apos;s Law   n 1 sin  1 = n 2 sin  2   b. Critical angle ( Symbol:  c ) angle of incidence for which angle of refraction is 90° (as light passes from a medium (n) into air or a vacuum)   sin  c = 1/n   (from nsin  c = 1.00sin 90°)   c. Total internal reflection occurs when angle of incidence is greater than critical angle.   Examples : fiber optics sparkling diamond rainbow d. Dispersion separation of polychromatic light into its component wavelengths as the light enters a dispersive medium obliquely. Different frequencies (colors) of light travel at different speeds through a dispersive medium.   Red, blue, and green light make white   i. Dispersive medium A substance in which the speed of a wave depends on its frequency. Glass is a dispersive medium for light.   Examples : Diamond Rainbow Chandelier Prism   ii. Non-dispersive medium One in which the speed of the wave does not depend on the frequency. A vacuum is non-dispersive for light.
