How many materials follows TOTAL INTERNLAL REFLECTION

  1. Feb 26, 2009 #1
    Hi all ,it is my first post so sorry if I make any mistake ,we all know about the total internal reflection in which when we passed light in any material with an angle greater than the critical angle then it will bound or catch inside the light,

    Now I want to prepare a list of the such ,material those follows TOTAL INTERNAL REFLECTION

    1.GLASS
    2.ACRYLIC
    NOW PLEASE TELL ME MORE MATERIALS NAME

    thanks in advance

    sorry for bad English

    It appears that you have not understood the scenario in which total internal reflection occurs, which made your question rather puzzling.

    Figure out http://hyperphysics.phy-astr.gsu.edu/hbase/phyopt/totint.html" [Broken] it occurs (hint: look at the index of refraction of the 2 medium involved). Then see if your question here makes sense.
