## Angle of refraction Formula and Calculation

θ2 = arcsinc2/c1× sinθ1
Sine of Refraction Angle calculation 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. sinθ2 = c2/c1 × sinθ1sinθ2 = c2/c1 × sinθ1sinθ2 = / × sin()sinθ2 = × sinθ2 = θ2 = arcsinc2/c1 × sinθ1θ2 = arcsinc2/c1 × sinθ1θ2 = arcsin/ × sin()θ2 = arcsin × θ2 = arcsinθ2 = Speed of light waves in the incident medium (C1) m/s Speed of light waves in the medium of refraction (C2) m/s Angle of incidence (θ1) 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.
