The Angle of Refraction Calculator will calculate the:

- The angle of refraction of light waves when they change medium

θ_{2} = arcsin*c*_{2}*/**c*_{1}× sinθ_{1}

The sine of the refraction angle of light waves when they change medium is degrees. |

The angle of refraction of light waves when they change medium is degrees. |

sinθ_{2} = × sinθc_{2}/c_{1}_{1}sinθ _{2} = × sinθc_{2}/c_{1}_{1}sinθ _{2} = × sin(/)sinθ _{2} = × sinθ _{2} = |

Angle of refraction calculation |

θ_{2} = arcsin × sinθc_{2}/c_{1}_{1}θ _{2} = arcsin × sinθc_{2}/c_{1}_{1}θ _{2} = arcsin × sin(/)θ _{2} = arcsin × θ _{2} = arcsinθ _{2} = |

Angle Of Refraction Calculator Input Values |

Speed of light waves in the incident medium (C_{1}) m/s |

Speed of light waves in the medium of refraction (C_{2}) m/s |

Angle of incidence (θ_{1}) rad |

Please note that the formula for each calculation along with detailed calculations are available below. As you enter the specific factors of each angle of refraction calculation, the Angle Of Refraction Calculator will automatically calculate the results and update the Physics formula elements with each element of the angle of refraction calculation. You can then email or print this angle of refraction calculation as required for later use.
