physics/math problemhere is a math/physics problem or exercise that i made:p where V1 is the angle of incidence, V2 the angle of refraction and N1 is the refractive index for air (1) and N2 is the refractive index for glass (1,52) i will post my solution later #2 20070213 07:48:34
Re: physics/math problemawww. doesnt work ah well, atleast i tried Last edited by lucadeltodesco (20070213 07:48:46) The Beginning Of All Things To End. The End Of All Things To Come. #3 20070213 07:52:03
Re: physics/math problemactually. when refraction occurs, the refracted ray is in the opposing side of the normal, so r is negative to what i have above, and plugging that in, it does seem to work.

Re: physics/math problemnicely done, and cool "animation" #5 20070213 11:29:02
Re: physics/math problemYeah, neat animation, luca, as always "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20070217 04:34:16
Re: physics/math problemHere is my solution: (its negative since the curve is going down) V being the angle in the corner of the triangle that the function for the tangent in (x,f(x)) creates. V will be the same as the angle of incidence (see picture) B=angle of refraction i think it works, it is maybe possible to short it down Last edited by Kurre (20070217 05:39:08)
