Problem 79GP

At what angle above the horizon is the Sun when light reflecting off a smooth lake is polarized most strongly?

Step-by-Step Solution:

Step-by-step solution

Step 1 of 3

Brewster's Law;  When an unpolarized light undergoes a refraction from one medium to another, The refracted ray and reflected rays are partially polarized, The incident angle, which makes the polarization of reflected and refracted ray to be perpendicular to each other, is called Brewster's angle

;the Brewster's angle

; the refractive index of the first medium.

; the refractive index of the second medium
