Description:

This item is an interactive Java simulation for students of introductory physics or optics on the phenomenon known as Brewster's Angle. This simulation allows students to change the refractive index and wavelength of an incident light wave on an insulated surface to explore the phenomena. Included is a full text explanation of related concepts and equations for calculating Brewster's Angle. This item is part of a larger collection of materials for students of introductory optics and microscopy. (See Related Item below to link to additional simulations and resources on this topic by the same authors.)
