Brewster's Angle phenomenonn using Electric field of an oscillating electric dipole

Explain Brewster's Angle phenomenon with the help of "Electric field of an oscillating electric dipole."

Solution Preview

When light moves between two media of differing refractive index, at one particular angle of incidence, light with one particular polarization cannot be reflected. This angle of incidence is called the Brewster's angle. Electric dipoles in the media respond to p-polarized light in particular ways. The light ...
