Unformatted text preview: θ 2 . Now, the angles in the triangle ABC must add to 180 ◦ : 180 ◦ = 2 θ 2c + φ = ⇒ θ 2 = φ 2 . Also, the angles in the triangle ADC must add to 180 ◦ : 180 ◦ = 2 ( θ − θ 2 ) + ψ s = ⇒ θ = 90 ◦ + θ 2 − 1 2 ψ s which simpli±es to θ = θ 2 + 1 2 ψ . Combining this with our previous result, we ±nd θ = 1 2 ( φ + ψ ). Thus, the law of refraction yields n = sin( θ ) sin( θ 2 ) = sin ( 1 2 ( φ + ψ ) sin ( 1 2 φ ) ....
