Snell's Law illustrates the relationship between the angles of incidence and refraction for a wave intruding on an interface between two medium with different indices of refraction. Snell's law is also known as the Snell-Descartes law and the law of refraction.


Formula :

n1 sinθ1 = n2 sinθ2 Where, n1 = Refractive Index of first medium n2 = Refractive Index of second medium sinθ1 = Angle of Incidence sinθ2 = Angle of Refraction
