1. Light is incident normally from air onto the surface of water whose refractive index is 1.334 2 nH O = . Assuming zero absorption of the light what is the percentage of incident power that is transmitted into the water? 2. Amplitude transmission coefficient (t=2ns/ns+nu) and Amplitude reflection coefficient (r=ns-nu/ns+nu) 3. Refer to Page 3 biii) in the included PDF for the supposed correct answer as given by my university. It chooses to use the amplitude reflection coefficient and then the conservation of energy to get an answer of 98%. I got this answer as well using this method. However it seemed more intuitive to me to use the transmission coefficient instead as we want the power TRANSMITTED so I proceeded to plug in the numbers into the equation I've given above. I however got an answer close to 73%. Could someone help me in where I went wrong.
