here we have to apply the law of Snell: \[\large {n_1}\sin {\theta _1} = {n_2}\sin {\theta _2}\]

now we can suppose that: n_1=1 and \theta_1=30

ok! what happens next?
Michele_Laino
  • Michele_Laino
so we have: \[\large \sin {\theta _2} = \frac{{{n_1}\sin \theta }}{{{n_2}}} = \frac{{0.5}}{{{n_2}}}\]

ok! and what is n2? :/
rvc

away from the main question lol

next: for which values of n_2, we have the smallest value of \sin(\theta_2)?

what do you mean @rvc ? and ok! @Michele_Laino would that mean that diamond is the one that will bend teh light the most?
