Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use Snell's Law to determine the incident ray's critical angle. A picture of the critical angle circumstance will help you realize how to do this. Then compare this number with your given number, (again, a picture will help) in order to arrive at a "yes" or "no."
