  • When a light beam travels from a medium of a higher index of refraction to a medium of lower index of refraction, the refracted beam bends outwards, away from the normal. You can then imagine that at some point, you are going to hit where the refracted beam exits at 90 degrees. It is at this point where you hit the critical angle.

    2. 2. Law of Reflection <ul><li>The law of reflection states that when a ray of light reflects off a surface, the angle of incidence is equal to the angle of reflection. </li></ul>
    3. 7. Diffuse Reflection <ul><li>Reflection off of rough surfaces such as clothing, paper, and the asphalt roadway leads to a type of reflection known as diffuse reflection . </li></ul>
    4. 10. Why does a dry road diffuse light, when a wet road specularly reflects.
    5. 11. Index of Refraction <ul><li>n = c/v </li></ul><ul><li>The larger the index, </li></ul><ul><li>the slower the </li></ul><ul><li>speed of light </li></ul>

    13. 22. Understanding Refraction One side of wave front slows down, and the entire train of fronts twists.

    15. 24. Snell’s (Sahl’s) Law (a history) <ul><li>Ibn Sahl was an Arabian Mathematician and optics engineer associated with the court of Baghdad. In 984 he wrote a treatise On Burning Mirrors and Lenses in which he set out his understanding of how curved mirrors and lenses bend and focus light. Ibn Sahl is credited with discovering the law of refraction, usually called Snell's law. </li></ul><ul><li>In 1621, Willebrord Snellius (Snel) derived a mathematically equivalent form, that remained unpublished during his lifetime. </li></ul>
    16. 25. Snell’s Law <ul><li>Snell discovered that the ratio between the sine of the incident and refracted angles is equal to the ratio of the incident and refracted velocities. </li></ul>
    17. 26. Snell’s Law continued <ul><li>Because the velocity of light is extremely difficult to measure, it is more practical to use the indices of refraction. Due to the fact that the velocity is inversely proportional to the index of refraction, you get… </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul><ul><li> Or… </li></ul>
    18. 27. Law of Refraction: Snell's Law Right front wheel slows down first. Snell's Law: n2 sin Q2 = n1 sin Q1
    19. 28. Snell's Law Example n 1 = 1.0 (air) n 2 = 1.52 (glass) Q 1 = 30 degrees ------------------------ n 2 sin Q 2 = n 1 sin Q 1 1.52 sin Q 2 = 1.0 sin 30 sin Q 2 = 0.33 Put calculator in Mode Degree Q 2 = sin -1 (0.33) = 19.3 degrees

    29. 38. Internal Reflection All rays reflect internally, but the top three rays reflect only a small percentage internally; most energy leaves the prism. The fourth and fifth rays are reflected 100 % internally.

    31. 40. Critical angle… <ul><li>An incident angle at which the refracted angle is 90 o </li></ul><ul><li>Note: This can only happen in a case when light travels from a higher index of refraction to one with a lower index of refraction. </li></ul>

    33. 44. Critical Angle Calculation What must be Q 1 to get Q 2 = 90 deg ? Snell's Law: n 1 sin Q 1 = n 2 sin Q 2 = n 2 sin 90 sin Q 1 = n 2 / n 1 ------------------------------ Assume water to air: n 1 = 1.33 n 2 = 1.00 q 1 = sin -1 (0.752) = 48.8 degrees Q c = critical angle = 48.8 degrees
    34. 45. Cone of Light Crictical angle for water = 48.8 degrees Light within the 48.8 degree cone is detected by fish, while nothing in the air outside that cone can be seen. The only light reaching the fish outside the cone is that light (not shown) which is reflected off the bottom of the pool.
    35. 46. Critical Angle of Diamond n = 2.419 Q c = sin -1 (1.00/2.419) = 24.42 degrees 90.00 - 24.42 = 65.58 degrees Light outside of 65.58 degree cone is reflected back inside. Virtually all light entering the top face of the diamond is reflected internally.
    36. 47. Total internal reflection <ul><li>When incident light is at an angle greater than the critical angle, the light will reflect instead of refract. </li></ul><ul><li>When there is total internal reflection, the light will obey the law of reflection. </li></ul>
