Snell’s Law Calculator

To calculate the angle of refraction of an incident ray entering a raindrop enter:

  1. The refractive index of air for a ray with wavelength 589.29 nm. n1) = 1.000293
  2. The refractive index of water for ray with wavelength 589.29 nm, (n2) = 1.3333
  3. The Angle of incidence of your ray as it strikes the surface. (θi) = angle between the ray and the normal

The angle of refraction2) will appear in the final box.
