A light beam hits glass (refractive index = 1.52) at an angle of incidence of ${48}^{\circ}$. What is the angle of refraction?

Best answer
Using Snell's law,

$n_1\sin{x_1} = n_2\sin{x_2}$

$  1.52\sin{48^{\circ}} = 1\cdot \sin{x_2}$

$\sin{x_2} = \dfrac{1} {1.52\sin{48^{\circ}} } $

$x_2 = 62.29^{\circ} $ degrees angle of refraction.
