Homework Help: physics

Posted by Lora on Saturday, January 16, 2010 at 4:06pm.

light travels from ethanol intro crown glass. what's the brewster angle in this situation? illustrate your answer with a light ray diagram. what's the signifcance of this angle of incidence?

n1=1.36for ethanol
nR=1.52 for crown glass

tanangleB=nR/ni
=1.52/1.36
=1.12 (48.2 degrees)

the only thing that I have in the diagram is the face that both the incident and reflected rays are 48.2 degrees in the ethanol..not even sure if that is right.

not sure how to draw it or what the signicance is....please explain.

Bob - I looked at the website you gave me. In order to draw it, do I need to also figure out the angle of incidence and reflection? If so, how do i do that...thanks
