Write the relation between the angle of incidence and the angle of refraction for a medium.


The relationship between the angles of incidence and the angle of refraction for a medium is given by Snell's law.

$\frac {sine\ of\ angle\ of\ incidence (i)}{sine\ of\ angle\ of\ refraction (r)}=constant\ (n)$. This constant is known as the refractive index.


Explanation

According to Snell's law, the ratio of sine of angle of incidence to the sine of angle of refraction is equal to the constant for a given pair of media.
