A light ray travels through medium 1, index of refraction n1 = 1.1, into medium 2, index of refraction n2 = 1.6 (Figure 1).

A light ray travels through medium 1, index of refraction n1 = 1.1, into medium 2, index of refraction n2 = 1.6 (Figure 1).


At what angle with respect to the normal to the interface between the media does the light need to strike the interface so that the reflected and the refracted rays are at right angles to each other?
