    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    Glasses have a variety of different refractive indices. Calculate the Brewster angle for a glass with a refractive index of 1.5.


    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    tan(θB) = n2/n1
    tan(θB) = 1.5/1
    θB = 56.31 degrees
