Brewster’s angle …when angle between reflected beam and refracted beam is exactly 90 degrees, reflected beam is 100% horizontally polarized ! Reflected light is partially polarized (more horizontal than vertical). But…    tan θ B = n 2 n 1 n 1 sin θ B = n 2 sin (90- θ B ) n 1 sin θ B = n 2 cos ( θ B ) horiz. and vert. polarized θ B θ B 90º- θ B 90º horiz. polarized only! n 1 n 2
Dispersion prism White light Blue light gets deflected more n blue > n red The index of refraction n depends on color! In glass: n blue = 1.53 n red = 1.52

Skier sees blue coming up from the bottom (1) , and red coming down from the top (2) of the rainbow. Rainbow Wow look at the varia t ion in index o f refraction!

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
