How will it bend? Or will it not bend at all?

what would snell's law imply?

i dont know :/
lets say it goes from glass to air
1.5 = sin(theta)

but what does that say about theta?

Hint, the correct equation for Snell's Law is:

$$n_{1} sin(\theta_1) = n_{2} sin(\theta_2)$$

Where $\theta_1$ and $\theta_2$ are the angle from the normal.

Looks like you should have a sin(zero) factor in there.
