The critical angle for a piece of quartz is 37.3 degrees when the quartz is in air. If the piece of quartz is instead immersed in a transparent liquid with index of refraction n = 1.31, what is the angle of refraction in the liquid for a light ray incident at 21 degrees?© BrainMass Inc. brainmass.com October 10, 2019, 12:55 am ad1c9bdddf
Critical angle of quartz = C = 37.3 degrees
Refractive index of quartz relative to air = 1/sin C = ...
This solution provides steps to determine the angle of refraction in the liquid for a light ray incident at 21 degrees.
